Had a cave tasting wine ok,ambience was super, but the background music for such a lovely setting was horrible Heavy rock,detracted entirely from the experience.

Took a picnic, bought a bottle and enjoyed the view. Wine was good, but with salami and cheese dishwater tastes good too. Nice area, friendly staff, fun time

Loved this winery! The tasting room and grounds are beautiful, and the views are amazing. We enjoyed the tasting with our host, who shared insight on the wines and stories about the connection between Helwig and the Iditarod (of which I'm a HUGE fan!). Unwound on the patio area sharing a bottle of wine with our group.

Spacious tasting room and back covered area has lovely views of the grapevines growing all around and rolling hills with old oaks. Very friendly! Gail is quite helpful! They have music concerts and dining outside on weekends.

Beautiful surroundings even in the dry season.Private tasting had five wines and our director was not snobby at all. It was very relaxed tour and we had many great wines to taste. Didn't spend as much time as would have liked. Winery has a restaurant and regular tasting as well, did not try the food.

Been a member here for several years and have always enjoyed the wine. We visit the winery once a year and the people and tastings are great.

This was one of the two rather large and obvious new wineries to open in the Plymouth area. Personally, I prefer the older, down home type of wineries. If you like the mega-style wineries go hit Napa - I wish this one would have opened up in that area instead. For a modern winery I guess this is ok but... More

The architecture, gardens, surrounding vineyards, and expansive views are outstanding. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. These folks have the wine country lifestyle worked out perfectly. The wines themselves are good, though expensive.
