This winery has won more awards than any other winery in the country, the Dry Chenin Blanc and the Reisling being the biggest winners. The same team of winemakers has been here for over two decades and the aesthetic is European with a California flavor. The winery carries a wide stock of whites, reds and varietals. The property also has a retail store and a tasting room where you can sample the many award-winning wines. The winery grows their own grapes and in the last decade has planted over half a million new vines.
THE WINE WAS EXCEPTIONAL!!! I am partial to whites but enjoyed every red I tasted. The grounds were reminiscent of a euro chateau, with a beautiful patio amid lots of greenery- I was surprised that the tasting was free of charge! The workers were very knowledgeable, friendly with absolutely no pressure to purchase. I plan to join the wine club this week!!!
The staff is so knowledgeable and genuinely love their wines. The setting is a hidden gem on the Monterey-Salinas Hwy (68). Once you find this tasting room be ready to sip some excellent wines. My personal favorite is "The Lady", but all the reds were wonderful. I have tasted at many of the local wineries, and this is by far the one I will return to. Enjoy!!
The staff is very friendly, they talk to you about each wine on the list, you are encouraged to take your time and comment on them. We bought a few bottles afterwards, they have a beautiful patio seating outside. It's definately worth your time!!!
