Very disappointed in our host. He did not give us any history on the wine, only to say it was a Saviagn Blanc, Rose, etc. During the choc tasting I had to get up and ask if he forgot about us. I explained we had a wine and cheese tasting which we booked on your website only to be told that is no longer available. As I said, very disappointing trip considering we have been there several times.

The tasting is $40. Definitely go there if you have the cellarpass. If you do a paid tasting, you can use it towards a purchase. I appreciate that when tasting room let's you put your paid tasting towards a purchase. The property is beautiful. When I go back there with someone, I will pay for a tasting for the both of us to decide which bottle to buy. Then, take it outside and enjoy the property.

We arrived 1 hr early to our rsvp. They said it was no prob as our table was ready. Online it stated we were scheduled for the wine and chocolate pairing. After mentioning that we had the cellar pass, they said they do our tasting at the bar instead. We also only got 4 wines to try and no chocolate (although we didnt press the issue.) Not sure if the change was due to us being early or pass.

We had a group of four attending for a tasting. Half of us were stuck in traffic and didn't end up arriving until shortly before close. They not only greeted the first half of our group warmly, providing them with tastings until the rest of us arrived, but they even stayed late so that we could enjoy their wines. Truly exceptional service.
