First place I visited in TC

I love wine and this place was just opening up so they hooked us up with some delicious wine samples that we took outside and enjoyed a beautiful hillside view.

Stopped here while making our way around the Peninsula and was very pleased with the wines. They offer a nice selection and many varieties of wines. The staff was helpful with explaining the wines during the sampling. Prices here are coparable with most of the other wineries on the Peninsula.

At the tip of the wine trail. Great view of the bay from the tasting room. Wines were ok. Didn't think there was anything special we tasted. Staff was knowledgable and polite.

A great sampling experience here, our waiter went above and beyond to explain the wine-making process. The building is cool too! I did buy some wine to enjoy at home - it was excellent!

This was the second stop on my vineyard tour. The view of the Bay is fantastic! The building is very industrial-modern. Different than what I'm used to. Did a wine tasting--wines very good. The server was pleasant enough, but didn't really spend much time with me. I did make some purchases in the gift shop & got the tasting for... More

I don't live here YET, but will in the next couple of years. My sister has a second home here so I am lucky enough to visit often. My first ever wine tasting experience was here and I come back every year to see & taste whats new.
