I highly recommend the wine and cheese pairing at Matanzas Creek if you go. It was a better experience than the wine tasting alone and worth the little bit of extra money to do. The lavender fields were great and I loved the lavender truffle...More

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.
