We made our first tour at Shafer Vinyards and we were not disappointed. Our guide Amgela was engaging and knowledgeable. From winery history to the wines she covered the bases. The total experience was super!

Back again after another year, had a conference to attend in Santa Rosa, wife flew out, and we couldn't be this close and not make a stop at Shafer! Love the Hillside Select, just don't love the price.
