I was traveling solo and stopped here on way from Jack London's estate. I loved the tour, learned so much from David! It was great to learn about their natural practices. The views from every point are spectacular! I loved to go into the cave and smell the wine. The tasting at the end was adequate, with four samples. I ended up purchasing two bottles to take with me. All in all, it was a great day!

Best experience of our wine weekend. Byron was a great host, very knowledgeable about what makes them different than all the rest. You can’t go wrong with this property. All six of us agreed it was the best tour in Sonoma and Napa....awesome wine!!!!!

Stopped here after hiking Jack London park. It's a lovely hilltop winery with pretty grounds, a tram tour, history lesson, and a big board with the family's recommendations for local must sees. We ended up shipping wine home after a tasting. The grounds are really nice with a big outdoor seating area.

This whole experience was really great! We went after a friend's suggestion. The tour was given by one of the member of the family. It was very educational and fun. The wine samples were great and the whole property was beautiful.

What an awesome experience, even for a local!!! Everyone should make a plan to go to this winery to do the tram tour. the winery groups are super awesome and hearing the their story was fascinating! You learn about the 5 B's (Birds, Bees, Bob Cats, Bats and Bugs). They actually have 14 bird boxes that both the owls and the bats share. The owls enter through the round hold and the bats stay in the elevated roof of the houses. Who would have thought that these two very different species could be room mates. Our tour guide/driver David was super awesome as well as Barbara who check us in! A must for your to do lists!
