I heard about this winery from a friend. She was right about the amazing wine and company. Mr. Caldwell was so friendly and had great stories about how the winery started. This winery is a must stop you won't be disappointed!

The cave is immaculate and the experience was such that not only did I buy wine there, I joined their SOS program because I wanted to be guaranteed I could get their Cab Fanc. If you haven't been, find a way to get in!

If they have an opening, you may still be able to get in. I'd call - they do not do walk-ins. John and his wife are fun, wonderful people! 707.255.1294 - phone number
