We are glad we joined the family

We come to the valley's once a year, most of time with a group, but this time, it was just us. We do a lot of up front discovery work, spreadsheet and reserve spots before we come. We cam upon the Little Vineyard by chance and boy are we elated that we stopped. Off the highway, behind some trees and... More

It's a small but cool place, informal, full of wood. The gardens is full of vine and it is beautiful. The woman in the staff was polite but had no charisma whatsoever and my glass of wine was always considerably smaller than my male friend, though it's costs exactly the same.

One of the more approachable wineries. Really nice wines. The outdoor seating has a beautiful view of the vineyards. You can also order wines by the glass (which after only being able to do tastes at every other winery is really a nice opportunity!) The staff was friendly and the number of wines you get for the tasting price is... More

We had a great time at this beautiful "little" winery. The wine was great....bought 2 bottles of the Petite Syrah, one for home and the other with our picnic lunch. The nice staff even gave us a table cloth for the picnic table. Thanks. We had a great visit.

We loved this rustic family winery. The staff was warm, welcoming and friendly. They described each wine with clarity and details. The garden is stunning and beautiful, with great vistas all around. You can stroll around the vineyards and see the giant grapes on the vine up close!! The wine itself - some hits and some misses, but overall a... More

We came here on the suggestion of the concierge at our hotel. Very nice tasting room, decorated with guitars, mandolins and various string instruments. The owner is a music enthusiast and that transfers to the casual and creative vibe of the venue. We were greeted by a friendly old brown dog just outside the entrance, which let us know to... More

As the name says, this place is a little vineyard tucked away from the main road. Patio tasting with a gal who clearly knows the wines, but there were no pretenses whatsoever. There was one couple there when we arrived and then a couple of gals, who we had met at another winery, showed up. We were the only groups... More

To start out I did not like all the wines. Having said that the wines were good, well made and priced right. You have to give props for people who work the land and produce what they harvest. Some grapes can be difficult but that's the beauty of a small winery. The winery was very cute, with eye popping detail... More

Fun vineyard and good wine. This was our last stop of the day. Loved the views and wine. I was a fan of the Syrah 2012. They were very busy, but we still had a great time. You won't go wrong stopping here. Dogs welcome.
