Jen treated us to a wonderful experience of their wine. In fact we liked everything about the winery so much that we joined the wine club.... More

Stopped by on a tour with Flex Wine Tours this last weekend, had a wonderful visit with Rachel, the wines and conversation were wonderful, we didn't try anything we did not like and ended up purchasing the Chardonnay and Zinfandel, as well as, a Beckstoffer Cab which I highly recommend!

We were greeted when we got out of our car by Letitia had wine already poured for us. She was fantastic and really made our visit so much better. We had conversations with her while we tried several wines. She told us not only about the Fontanella family, but explained a lot about wine making. Such a great place we... More

I have drank many bottles of Fontanella but this was my first visit. The grounds are beautiful, the employees are the greatest, and the wines are consistently the best year after year. From the GIII to the red table wine there are no wrong answers when partaking in this brand!

This winery and the people who work here are incredible and make you feel like family. We were greeted by Julie with a smiling face and a glass of wine who sat us outside on their cozy patio with an amazing view. She then brought us out some snacks and we began our tasting. She was very knowledgeable and so... More

My wife and I recently attended a wine club event at Fontanella Winery after being invited by our former neighbors who have been long term wine club members there. We lived less than a mile from the winery for many years yet we were not aware of the wonderful treasure in our own neighborhood, tucked away in the nearby hills.... More

This winery is off the beaten path as compared to most. When we pulled up I commented that this felt like a winery in southern Italy rather than California. This is a family business and it really shows. We did a barrel tasting of a couple of different wines. I can't say enough about this place.

Fontanella Family Winery creates the perfect combination of a personal tasting (with the amazing Jennifer Marley, if you're lucky!), and tour. Other wineries we visited offered either a group tour or a private tasting, but here we had both and felt like personal guests with behind-the-scenes access. To top it off, the wines were delicious. As we drove up the... More

Visited on a Sunday morning at 10:30am. And yes, people do drink wine that early. This was up a curvy mountain road and has a gate that they buzz you in. Megan met us at the car with some Chardonnay, which was a very nice touch. I really enjoyed the family atmosphere and intimacy of the tasting. Of all the... More
