The wines here we're very young and hard to drink. The bar tender even served us one he described as "it didn't turn out right. It's pungent, like a bell pepper".

My wife and I stopped at Bonobo on our way back off the peninsula after an afternoon of wine tasting. Really nice tasting room with a large balcony overlooking the fields behind the building. Nice whites, a good stop.

We stopped for a tasting, they have a very nice selection of whites and reds. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable. The property is beautiful! They have a fairly large menu of really unique food as well.

The views of rows upon rows of grape vines with the bay in the distance is worth a stop at this place. But more than that, the wines were very nice, appetizers were great and service good.
