Located in the picturesque mountains of Saratoga, this winery offers some of the most exquisite wines in California. The drive itself is worth the trip! The winery holds a variety of wine tasting events and summer concerts and is also available for weddings, private parties and corporate events. The winery supports a Kids' Foundation that raises funds for under-privileged children. Check out the website for details of forthcoming events.
Having visited hundreds of wineries throughout California over the years, I can say that this was a low point. The ambiance was outstanding. Magnificent views. But you can't drink views. The quality of the wines was marginal and the pours were micro. Having said this, there are too many legitimate wineries easier to access that have much better quality wines.
I love this venue, yes it is a little pricey, yes the food in not worth the price, but the Atmosphere and people are great. We saw 6 concerts this last summer and had a great time everytime. We even took our young adult children and they loved it also. We saw Smokey, Huey, Los Lonely Boys, Creedence, Boz Scaggs, Temptations, and in the past have seen Chicago, Steely Dan and Donna Summers, each one a great experience.
And the View you cannot beat on a clear night. We will be waiting for this years schedule to come out in April.
Beautiful venue....but not $15- parking-fee-beautiful! Are you kidding me? It would be a different story if they offered an option (i.e., "don't pay, park far away" or "pay $15, park up front"). But no, pay $15 and then park a mile away. You can't park somewhere else because there isn't a "somewhere else."
$3.00 for a coffee? Seriously? Did the winery grow the coffee beans too?
I haven't even mentioned the $200.00 ticket that allowed us to barely see James Taylor's profile (who, by the way, was spectacular....even though the venue wasn't!). We went to TMW three years ago and loved it. Congratulations for ruining the place with "yuppy" remodel and over- priced EVERYTHING.
Three words for The Mountain Winery: GET OVER YOURSELF!
I saw Toad the Wet Sprocket here last year, and it was fantastic. The winery is beautiful, the theater is small enough that all seats are good seats, and the atmosphere was great. Wine was a little over priced for the quality (but still quite nice). Flying out from NYC to go to this event again this year.
Expensive ticket, $15 for parking. Audience and Mountain Winery staff alike talked through the entire opening act. I moved twice within general admission to avoid the backround noise. I even had to ask the people right next to me to stop talking. The icing on the cake was when an employee of the winery had his cell phone ring during the set, then he answered the call even and talked for at least 45 seconds. Not even realizing that he was an employee, I stood up and told him to take his call elsewhere. He continued to talk for several more seconds. When he walked away he then had the nerve to threaten me with,"Gonna get you kicked out right away Bro". Later I followed him to the restuarant where he was taking his break. I took his picture with my cell phone, and filed a complaint with customer service and showed them the picture. They fed me some BS about how they'd take care of it, and how someone will certainly get chewed on. I wasn't compensated in any way, even though I was threated by their staff. I feel sorry for Amos Lee having to put up with such a rude audience. Hopefully artists will learn not to even play at mountain winery. I know I won't be going back.
We drove over 6 hours to get to this place. We entered the open gate a couple of hours before the show and drove up the hill. Once we arrived at the parking lot, we called about our concert & dinner reservation that we paid $411 for. We were promptly told to leave. We asked if we could at least walk around since we'd been on the road all morning. The phone operator obliged. We walked down toward the vineyards, and got harrassed by a loser in a golf cart. He told us that we were trespassing. I've never paid so much money to get treated like a common criminal. This jerk even followed us back to our car to enforce his policy. If they had only shut their own gate, or had a sign telling concert & dinner goers to stay out until a later time, that would have been reasonable. Myself, my wife, and our 1 & 5 year old kids got treated terribly, and no one should patronize this horribly managed impersonage of a real business. The food was mediocre at best as well.
