David Girard is a beautiful interpretation of Rhône wines. From the reasonably priced Coda Rouge and Coda Blanc, to the single vineyard Syrah, they have many great offerings. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. We are members, and we stop in several times a year...More

Tasting at David Girard is a special event; but it's not for everyone. We do take issue with the negative reviews of this winery because it is different, yet special. It has a similar feel to being treated as VIP's in certain Napa wineries. We...More

Lovely place to visit at any season, has a patio with shade for summer, and an inviting fireplace for winter/rainy days, plus indoor tasting room is elegant. Tasting is by appointment only but that keeps it smaller and very personalized - accommodating staff. Wine club...More

We had a lovely wine tasting afternoon on Labor Day at Gerard Vineyard. We tasted lovely wines with a variety of Dutch Cheeses. And that was really a surprise as we are Dutch. Thanks a lot Rob! We had a great time.

Although you need to make an appointment for a tasting, it is worth being organized. Book in advance! You avoid the annoying crowds of people and you receive superior service. The tasting featured three whites and three red wines. Rod did a great job explaining...More

Took some relatives from out of town wine tasting. This was our first stop. We've never had to make an appointment before. The gate was closed so we used the intercom. The woman that answered acted like we were bothering her and she was very...More

Yes, you have to make an appointment, BUT it is so worth it! Loved taking the time to really think about the wine you are tasting- how it smells, looks, tastes... Best wine out of all of the vineyards we visited! Make the appointment, amazing...More
