Attended the winery for a jazz concert and a meal. The music was good however my view was obstructed by a huge fountain in the courtyard. I'm not sure this winery has the appropriate configuration for a concert if you decide to have a meal...More

Great burgers and even better desert. The wine club is great if you are local. Lots of perks. If you are in town give it a try.

We live near wine country, so have spent many lazy afternoons tasting at different vineyards. Thornton has remained a favorite for both its tasting room and its restaurant. Today my daughter enjoyed the champagne flight and I had the new release flight. Of course, we...More

We didn't have a reservation, but the manager still found us a table outside so we could enjoy the jazz band and order something. I ordered a salad since my lunch earlier that day was not very good and I didn't eat it and we...More
