First time at this winery. The servers seemed overwhelmed and pushed wines "on sale". The wines were just okay as was the tasting room.

Kimberly was our hostess and she rocked! We stopped in on our honeymoon vacation and we did the wine tasting for $12, ended up joining the wine club, and bought all sorts of little goodies from their little shop. Their wines are excellent, the Savignon...More

The server was extremely friendly and helpful. Most of their wines are on the sweet side. They have a lot of dessert wines.

I've been to a lot of wineries and we came here because of the movie. I have to say I was not impressed. It was ok but there is way better places in the area!

This winery was less attractive and fancy than Bridlewood, which is built in the mission style with lovely grounds, but I liked the wine better at Kalmyra. We had the white flight and liked almost all of them, particularly the Sauvignon Blanc. The Chardonnay they...More
