I've gone here for Father's Day twice now and we love it. It's such a grand spot and the dining room and balcony are gorgeous. I wish the restaurant was full-service for dinner, though. Only available for lunch and for special events. I would definitely be a regular patron if it were open on weekends for dinner! Good food, good... More

We attended a November wedding at Church and State. It is a beautiful location for a wedding and I strongly recommend it. The wine is good but not great. The food was simply delicious. This is a clean, beautiful location with a spectacularly friendly and efficient staff.

My wife is the wine drinker and she enjoyed the tastings of white wine they she chose. The bar area is very nice and very welcoming. They also have a bistro to eat at if you come during the operating hours.

Wife and I went to do a wine tasting. They have a fantastic tasting room. You have to pay $8 to taste 4 wines which was not bad since they gave good pours. The wine is pretty good though I wanted to taste the Boudreaux blend. It was not on the list though they would sell you a bottle. Not... More

Wanted to buy a 2014 wine after the wine sheet and the sales person gave us glowing reviews of this vintage. Told us "we are not pouring this wine today". Even though we could not taste this wine we decided we would buy a number of bottles anyway and were told to get it off the shelves. When we advised... More

Tasting costs $8 for 4 wines . Great staff lots of fun, but the wines range from $24-55 which is getting out of range for the average person i think. No tours only tasting and restauraunt

Church and State is a great vineyard. The staff were super friendly and the wines were amazingly great. We always compare any vineyard we visit to the vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Calistoga, St. Helena, and Russian River; and I must say I was truly amazed when we visited Church and State Vineyard. We purchased several bottles, my wife enjoyed the... More

We all also snacked on their a wonderful charcuterie board packed with cheeses sausage and olives there was also some red wine salami and the most wonderful warm crusty bread.
