This winery was perfectly located near Yosemite. They were very kind and welcoming. I wanted to give them more stars but just felt the over-all experience was more "average" than "excellent." They welcomed us warmly to stay the night in our RV in their parking...More

For live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights drive out Highway 140 in Merced towards Mariposa and stop at the Vista Ranch and Cellars. The outdoor menu is great and the music wonderful. Nothing is better on a hot summers night!

We enjoyed the tasting of 5 wines for $5 plus a panini lunch and really had a great time chatting with Arial, who is a true wine family descendant. I highly recommend!

The Vista Ranch does a pumpkin patch every year. Me and my family go out and get our pumpkins here. They have great prices and a huge selection. They also have games, hay ride and corn maze for the kids. I definitely recommend it.
