Great patio area to enjoy the great CA weather. Wine is pretty good. Not comparable to Sonoma/Napa, but nice. Food menu looked good, but we had just had lunch.

Attended a Rose and BBQ Summer Event at the winery and really enjoyed the whole vibe of this place from the property to the people. Nice outdoor seating, live music, flatbread pizza and light food options.

Folktales Winery was absolutely brilliant. We went earlier in the day before deciding to come back later for dinner instead when it was cooler. We were welcomed back and given a table outside in the lovely patio where there was extremely tasteful live background music....More
