They do have some very good wines! And I've always found the folks working there to be very pleasant. The place itself, however, is pretty small, cramped, and just feels "old."

You will never forget a trip to Blackwood Canyon Vinigery. I took one sip - threw the tasting fee on the counter and fled. I guess I'm too "new school" to appreciate a 20 year Chardonnay.

We went to visit the wine nazi and what a show. The tasting room had about 2.5 million fruit nats and you had to cover your glass. Mike was like 5 sheets to the wind when we arrived. He was shirtless, shoeless and wine stains...More
