Loved the wines and the most eclectic winery we have ever visited! A mix of vintage items! Greg was our wine host and very knowledgeable about the different varietals. Highly recommend a visit.

Really fantastic Pinot Noirs here. The staff was friendly and helpful and I really liked the eclectic feel of the place with the antiques and record shop. The views of the vineyards were lovely too.

We were late....it was close...what good luck to find this winery! As you enter you're charmed by a time warp of older Western decor and memorabilia. We did a reasonably priced flight of local Pinot Noirs and ended up purchasing several to return with us...More

There's a reason why Babcock is acknowledged by James Beard as a Top 10 small producer. Their wines are outstanding! We joined their wine club - an easy decision after our tasting was complete and worth the hassle of trying to figure out where to...More
