We attended the jazz concert with Brian Culbertson on June 2, 2018. Loved the music, except for some videos incorporated in the performance. Came to see live music, not videos. Opening comedian was not great. The high spots were when Brian played the piano. Great!...More

Darn, we thought this would be a fabulous dinner with wine. The wine flights are expensive - $25-30. The wine was fine. Nothing spectacular. Salmon was not cooked as advertised, chicken and pasta were enjoyable.

Went to this winery because they had champagne. We sat at a table and were given a tasting sheet with various ways to do their tastings. We picked the champagne flight (yummy). We were also given a menu from their restaurant. We decided to have...More

We had a stellar view of the hills surrounding Thornton Winery at the outdoor part of the restaurant. A nearby heat lamp kept us warm. We enjoyed a red wine flight (amazing) and a fabulous lobster panini. The eggplant soup was heavenly. Who knew you...More

As a current member of the Wine Club, we recently had a tasting and lunch at the Winery’s Restaurant. We have eaten there once before, and the food is very good. However, I believe that the prices are too high for what you get. We...More

Friends and I came here on a wine tour of 3 wineries and this was by far the worst of the three. From our nonsensical, rambling guide to some pretty sour tasting wine, we were completely underwhelmed. The only reason we give this a 3*...More

Along with some friends we toured Thornton Winery. They provided a tasting of four wines; two white and two red. Then someone in the group mentioned Thornton's chocolate wine! What a delicious surprise. A full bodied red "with a kiss of dark chocolate." The flavor...More

Such a gorgeous building. The tasting room is lovely . The gift shop is a little small. Love their house sparkling wine. Pretty pricey restaurant but good food. Outdoor dining has lovely views.
