Walked up to the winery from down town! Roughly 1/2 to 1 mile! Site of old Franciscan monastery! Tried the wine tasting flight, and toured the old buildings! They have restaurant on site, but we did not try! Very quaint place!!

I've taking my work team there for lunch (they help arrange catering). I have also gone there a few times with the family. The staff there are friendly and welcoming. The wines are great as well. There is a beautiful outdoor seating area.
