So many wineries to choose from, however Norma and her tour make this place a must visit. Wines are excellent and she shares not only information about the process and vineyard but the history of the estate as well.

I bought a groupon for two that included a tour, tasting, snack, class. Upon arriving you notice what a lovely place this is, an old adobe home on the register of historic landmarks surrounded by beautiful roses. There is a wonderful porch to sit on as well as other intimate seating areas around the property. this day there was an... More

One of the best Vineyards I have toured so far. Thanks to Groupon we found you! The rose gardens were in full bloom surrounded by a green lawn and acres of plumbed up vines. Our tour guide was delightful and very knowledgeable. You could tell she loves doing this and we loved being a part of it. She poured samples... More

As there was no tour the last said she would give us a BOGOF on a wine tasting - 12 tastings for $16. The amount in... More

Went on a tour of the Vineyard and our tour guide (from Ireland) was so nice, knowledgeable and friendly! Lovely setting, beautiful gardens and very pleasant day.

We stopped in to taste the wines of Rideau Vineyard and was pleasantly greeted by their staff and owner. It was such a great visit and joy to speak with Iris about her history of planting the grapes, repairing the home and turning it into a wonderful wine tasting venue that makes you feel right at home. This is a... More

We came here on the recommendation of many tripadvisor positive reviews. They were right! Beautiful location. And right away, we were greeted by Seth, and we were looking to do some tasting, he was the man to see. My wife and I were able to share the two tastings, and experience/learn so much about wine. We're novices, and we are... More

We having been visiting Rideau for close to twenty years. Their Mourvèdre ( which they were out of) Du Plantier, and Rousanne are tops in our book. And the prices, while not cheap, have not really increased that much in all that time!

Seth and Nicki (and everyone!) at Rideau made our last-minute stop there one of our favorite memories on our recent trip to California from Maine. We did the Reserve tasting and enjoyed not only the wine, but Seth's explanations and descriptions of how each was made. We stayed for lunch, had some delicious flatbread, and got a great recommendation list... More
