Partway through our outdoor tasting our serving person seemed to disappear. We had to go back inside to finish up. There was some event going on which made things chaotic. I thought the wines were so-so.

In the heart of Carmel Valley this winery features some nice whites and reds though the reds stand out, especially their Pinots. The staff was friendly in the comfortable tasting room and outdoor seating is available for nice weather. Recommended stop. Cheers

This was a big surprise for me since I didn't realize how good Monterey wine is. Met with the owner/father who used to be a cattle rancher. The son is the wine maker, as I recall. A very folksy plae with great wine..\

We were intrigued by name & had read some good things about winemaker. We’d been to Folktale, Twisted Root & Cima Colima, & this was disappointing. Staff not very friendly. Particularly the “Smokey” wine after the fires was NOT worth bottling in our opinion. This...More

Absolutely enjoyable wine tasting visit. The staff here is uber friendly. Especially enjoyed the Stainless Steel Chardonnay, and the 2015 3-Clone Pinot Noir. Lovely patio to sit and have a glass of wine. Wish they offered a cheese or charcuterie plate to accompany the wines....More
