I am not a huge wine drinker so I chose wineries by their views or extra touches. This quiet little winery was awesome! The wine was good, the views were beautiful, and the lavender was heavenly! I loved it!

We came from San Jose, almost a 2 hour drive. We were lucky to see the lavander in blossom (late June). We could walk around the property and take beautiful pictures. Wine was delicious ! We stayed there the whole afternoon.

This was so nice. Beautiful lavender garden (at their peak). What a nice sight. Then the wine tasting was also very good. Bring a picnic and buy a bottle of wine to enjoy with your lunch. What a nice afternoon there.

I don’t normally like sweet wines but the lychee wine was super good. They have bocce ball on their grounds which is a lot of fun. There’s also a lavender farm but it wasn’t in season. Can’t wait to return when it’s in bloom.

Once you go down the long gravel road and park you get to walk through the stunning rows of lavender to the tasting room. They are also considered a biodyamic operation, which is really cool. I went by myself so I could squeeze right in...More
