Great winery. Quiet and peaceful with great wine. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They also serve food, but we were just there for the wine.

I just got back from a wonderful time with friends at Tara Winery. This is a beautiful location, that I'd love to visit in the Spring, Summer, and Fall to take in more of the views.

I have visited Tara Winery several time over the past couple of years. I have always found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I enjoy their wines that I have a friend who travels to that region regularly and she always picks me up more bottles of wine. Love the wines and love visiting

We stayed in the cabin - a nice two room get-away on the edge of the property. Very private and quiet. The driveway to the cabin is hard pack gravel, which could be a challenge for low profile vehicles (we took it on a large motorcycle without any problems other than holding our breath!). It was a small distance to... More

We ate dinner after the... More

They have everything from a $12 burger to a $40 steak and it's all good! They have a great patio with live music often... More

Tara Vineyard and Winery is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon, leisurely drinking a bottle of their wonderful wine and admiring the view from the patio. So relaxing. My favorite is their Deck Wine for hot summer days! Bring some friends and stay for dinner! No stuffed shirts or wine snobs allowed! Often perfect strangers will strike up... More

My wife and I stopped at Tara on the way home from a day in Athens. The grounds are stunning. The B&B looked really nice, maybe we'll try it sometime. We sampled every wine on the menu. We liked most of them but found 2 we liked enough to buy bottles. We decided to stay for some dinner. I had... More
