We have been wine club members for 20+ years. We still enjoy picking up our wine club selections and staying for a glass or two of wine while sitting on the back deck. The view of the vineyards and the green foothills is quite relaxing. On the weekends the winery often hosts special tasting events that offers a reason to... More

Prepare to enjoy a laid back atmosphere amongst friendly staff. You can sit under a cherry tree or out on the deck facing the picturous hills. Bring a pinic lunch & sip away. I like their rosés, pinot or savinguion blanc. It's a small winery & very casual with low tasting fees.

Light Sangiovese Roseo at 12.4% is one of the few Rose wines I would really enjoy. The 2010 Estate Syrah is great! Tasting room manager friendly and very knowledgable. Showed them the Vivino app for wine ratings! Enjoy!

I love visiting this delightful little winery on Hecker Pass. Wine is very personal and I like the red wines which I consider great value for the price point. As a wine club member I get good discounts and the member events are fun. If you are looking for a 'Napa' experience you may be disappointed - but you will... More

I believe the poor customer service I received from a gentlemen in the Tasting Room was because of yesterday's Passport Weekend. I had purchased passports for my spouse and two guests, and I had asked the gentlemen that I wanted to purchase the Merlot that I had sampled outside, and he made a negative comment to a female employee indicating...

It's been over a decade since I last went to Solis. Two of David Vanni's sons now operate it, I was told. The wines have improved considerably since it first opened under the Vanni ownership in 1980, particularly the current release of Syrah ($35.00). There's a $5.00 tasting fee, but if you buy a bottle, you get $7.00 off the... More

We were at an event at Solis winery which was really nice. Their wines are decent and they have some fun events there. A few times that we've been there, they have been kind of stingy in the tasting room. One year we bought a case and when we asked for another taste of something they gave us a hard... More

What a nice stop along Hecker Pass Hwy. Great place for a picnic or just a nice place to relax and taste wine.
