Mike, a manager in the tasting room, conducted our wine tasting. He's incredibly well-suited for his job: filled with passion and knowledge. We're red wine lovers and truly enjoyed the "California version" of Italian wines. We enjoyed our tasting so much that we became wine...More

Well, this is a very pretty place to have lunch. That being said, my panini sandwich was really skinny and over toasted to the point that I could barely eat it. Great place for wine tasting, but if having a meal, choose wisely.

Very convenient setting with lovely patio area for lunch. Unfortunately, there weren't too many choice for vegans, but the beautiful pizzas had us wishing we could have one.

We have been in the VJB wine club for 8 years. Their wines are divine. The story of how the winery came to be is inspirational. The winery is a fun gathering place that's always crowded, but not so much that you don't get attention....More

Delicious wine and food with wonderful hospitality. Felt welcomed immediately. I've been with only my spouse a few times and with our young children a few times, as well. We just became wine club members because we love this place so much!

It's more a mixture of casual dress and summer wear. If it's a special event I would lean more towards business casual.
