We drove by this winery for years, mostly because of its association with Sideways. We - very wrongly - assumed that this implied they were riding on the coat tails of fame. A friend told us we had to try it, so being in the...More

one of the elite wine makers in the area (technically Santa Ynez), this place has amazing chardonnay, pinot noir, and cab/merlot blends a la Bordeaux. was briefly in the movie Sideways so you can check that off your list if so desired. Highly recommended.

No more 777, but they still have Double Down Syrah and several other great wines! Been visiting here for over 15 years.

The area is very nice with beautiful vineyards surrounding the tasting area. Nice gazebo outside to relax, have picnic and taste wine. Good quality wines and a good amount to taste for the fee. Large and nicely decorated interior.
