This place is actually quite small and intimate. The pictures of the tasting building in advertising magazines make it look much larger. Small is a good thing. A most enjoyable experience at this winery. Wines are quite good. The view is stunning. The hosts were...More

Loved the cherry wine here and staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the scenery from the small patio. Tucked away on a hillside with a lovely view on both sides.

Cambria hotel and suites, you will love it here. Not to many shuttles going to any vineyard. As for a dress code come as you are and no restaurant at this vineyard.
