Have always enjoyed Cakebread wines since it’s early years. Not too sure if they are just getting too big. Lots of construction going on with more Visitor area being built. Many smaller wineries to go to. Only opinion as many enjoy stopping here

A wonderful winery with some of the best red wine I tasted. Their 2004 Merlot was the most memorable wine in the flight that we tasted. The people were friendly and knowledgeable which made for a fun experience.
