The grounds of this vineyard are stunningly beautiful. This happens to be my favorite champagne, so a tasting here was must for us. The tasting room staff is personable and the environment is festive!

Staff is very attentive and informative. Good selection of items to try. I enjoyed trying these as it's a will known Champagne for every day mimosas or other options. I'm not a wine/Champagne conisour so this was great to learn the options.

A nice tour of the facility is available, with free champagne tasting afterwards. I was told its the only place outside of France that can legally call its product champagne. A nice little visit doesn't take long.

This is a lovely stop in wine country! Ask for Desmond for your tour guide. He's very knowledgeable and funny too! Nice to visit a winery that offers free tastings and caters the tastings to your individual palate. (Wineries in southern CA charge for tastings!)...More

After a nice hike at Armstrong woods we went to the noon tour and tasting at Korbel. The tour was more historical and filled more with feel good marketing than information about the actual champagne. It reminded me of the Miller brewery tour in Milwaukee...More
