I really like this winery. The wine is excellent, but high priced. They serve good food, and it's great to sit outside and enjoy the view of the valley.

And it's just in our backyard. Tucked away in a very nice setting. We were here a day after Thanksgiving bringing friends and family from Southern California. We enjoyed the food, wine, scenery and service. Please stay just the way you are.

I don't believe so. We had bought tickets for holiday wine trail event that included wine tasting at any of the wineries on the wine trail so I can't say for sure.
