We spent the afternoon at this winery and felt that we were treated like royalty. The wines were very good especially the Pinot Noir Snta Rita Hills 2012. Relaxing and nice seating area. Wish there was a place outside.

Excellent value tasting at $10, especially as the glass is included. The Vineyard Pinot Noir and Syrah are both a high step above their Santa Rita Hills versions. Decent Chardonnay and Riesling round out the 6 selections. Sandra was a knowledgable pourer.
