We were so excited to come to Caymus because we have loved the wines for a very long time. Unfortunately this was our least favorite stop on our trip. We had an appointment but it was the last one on a Saturday. We felt rushed, our table was not ready, no one explained anything to us, just poured our glass, it was very impersonal and we were not sure what we were suppose to be doing.

Came here every trip for 6 yrs. used to be our favorite. We did the table tasting every time (except the last 2). We loved the man who ran it, funny, so knowledgeable, emtertaining. It was a real experience. Used to recommend it first! Now it's mediocre. Guides aren't knowledgeable and they seem to want to churn and burn customers. We were told "it's the new ''modern' experience". THAT is a shame.

Ezekiel, our host, was very knowledgeable and took the time to not only communicate the qualities of the wines we were tasting, but also complimented the wine with suggested food pairings that made all the sense in the world as matches to the wine. Excellent tasting and overall experience

My tasting on the beautiful patio setting at Caymus this past week with J.R. The Wagner Family of Wines are some of my favorite and they did not disappoint. With the help of J.R. I also discovered the extremely pleasing Malbec called Red Schooner for the first time; it's quite different than your typical Argentinian Malbec. J.R. was most knowledgable and helpful throughout the whole experience.

Extremely disappointed in this visit. Wines were amazing and grounds are beautiful, but service is lacking. To visit you need to book a private tasting and at $50 a person, I expected considerably more than what we received and cannot possibly express that in the limited text allowed here. Basically Caymus is throwing away business because service and sales are so woefully inadequate.

We would have loved to have learned a little more about the winery and been able to see a bit more of it but loved our visit and will definitely come back. We also appreciated the complementary Reidel glass and comped tasting fee with purchase.

The experience was good. The servers could have been a bit more engaging - but they were knowledgeable. One suggestion is that for this level of wine tasting a cheese/charcuterie offering would be helpful - I would happily pay for this as an extra - for good wines it is not good enough to just sip them - offer them with a bit of food
