Stopped because another winery was closed. So glad we did. Rich was lovely and the wines unexpectedly nice. Great variety - especially if you like sweet wines.

We have visited wineries with wine we like better but never received the royal treatment by a family member who remember the old days told us great stories and took great care of us.

With a distinct Italian feel about it, the winery was superb - second visit in the last 6 years and well worth it

Delicious but more traditional wines. The people there are very friendly and the tasting experience harkens back to the 1960s in Napa. Their dessert and sweet wines are especially delicious. We have friends from 50 miles away come to buy them here. One of five...More
