The vibe of this winery wasn’t for us. A lot of people standing around, hard to find a place to sit, and long lines to get a glass of wine. The wine was mediocre.

We were visiting TC for a couple days in early January and wanted to visit some vineyards. This was one of our favourites. Great views from absolutely beautiful tasting room. Service was excellent. It was a good time of the year to go - not too busy, like the summer. Wine was good. Would certainly recommend it.

Wasn't the classiest winery we hit on this day as we had to stand at the counter after waiting in line, but the reward was some good wine and some fabulous people working there. The 21 Chard Barrique was wonderful and made the stop worth it.

I set up a tasting reservation for $20 per person. We each got 4 pours of 1 ounce wine of their choice. It was a total ripoff since a 6ounce+ glass of wine was $9. The view is pretty, but we were stuck inside at a tasting table. If you go DO NOT sign up for a tasting!

We visited here last year and had a great experience. This year, not so much. Closing time advertised at 8pm so we planned our day on Mission Point around it. Made it our last stop, at 7:45 only to be told they did last call 15 minutes ago. We just wanted to get a glass of bubbly and she wouldn’t even consider it. Very poor Bonobo, very poor. If last call us at 7:30 you need to clearly state that on your website!

Nice facilities with plenty of grouped seating that doesn’t make you feel on top of others. The pork belly is a delicious appetizer you must try. Many specific rules/regs with regard to food/wine purchasing. If you are considering having dinner you MUST make a reservation at least 24 hours ahead.

We happened upon Bonobo Winery while on vacation. Stopped in and glad we did. The wine was good and the charcuterie board was yummy. A great way to spend a summer day. Enjoyed the views and the fun swing. I'd recommend Bonobo Winery and visit if in the area again.

What a view!! This was our last stop on a winery tour and we're so glad we didn't miss it! We had a personal winery guide who gave us great recommendations (Mike at The Magic Shuttle Bus) and let us just take our time enjoying the delicious tastings, and the awesome view. The small plates they sell are out of this world and we loved the goat cheese dish and the barbacoa taco! We will definitely go back to this winery. What a special place!

Cozy winery with separate little nooks to sit in to enjoy friends, wine and food. Bonobo only serves their wine by the glass so no sampling flights.

Excellent wines!! This is a rare winery that specializes in dry reds, which is my strong preference. We had an amazing tour from Graham, and I really enjoyed the sparkling white that started our tour. Highly recommend!
