Stopped by to try some wine. Beautiful grounds with a huge tasting room. Did not take the tour since we were short on time. I will next time. If I remember correctly they offer a military discount.

Joined my daughter and friends for trivia night. Beautiful view and set up under a big tent. Great wine and bring your own snacks. Would like more questions and bit faster pace on the game. All in all, a fun time!

Who would expect wide-open spaces perfect for family pets and kids at a winery. Couple that with a beautiful view and great southern California weather and you are guaranteed a terrific experience.
