Many wineries in the area, but this one distinguished by its lovely grounds, multiple rooms and good wine. Tasting flight fee removed with purchase, which isn’t hard to do given the quality of the wines. Knowledgeable staff, pleasant service, convivial atmosphere. Good afternoon activity.

We are Brander wine club members and had a wine swap free tasting at Rideau and were so glad to give it a try. Wonderful line ups. We tried one each of the two flights. Smaller place, quiet, easy going, friends staff. Bought the Syrah.

We loved a tasting room right in Los Olivos but there's nothing that compares to driving on to the lovely vineyard grounds where you can see where the grapes are growing. This family-owned estate vineyard is picture perfect, with wonderful wines on the tasting menu....More

Response from Stephen M | Reviewed this property |
Yes, this place is very family friendly. However, you should probably call them to ask about children on the tour.
