We enjoyed our visit because the staff was so great. The wines are interesting with a Dry Riesling from Mendocino and a Rousanne which were both good. The cab was okay

not sure what you like than let your host do the deciding. not only will they pair you up with a wine for your taste buds. but you will taste more than just the 4 or 6 wine tastings ask for Robin.

The wine! The patio! The service! Everything about this place was amazing. Robin, our hostess, was a lovely woman who did an incredible job describing the wines. I know that wine is subjective, but I enjoyed everything I tasted here.
