This is a small, unassuming winery that differs from the showy tasting rooms we've seen far too often. Well worth your time if you really appreciate wine. All the wines are good but the reds are exceptional. Pam was delightful and clearly proud of what...More

Pleasant setting. Friendly, knowledgable owners. Excellent wines. I recommend the champagne. It's quite good. The Muscat is good. It's not the typical sweet wine. This is drier. Very nice. We went home with several bottles of champagne and Viognier. Those were my favorites. They have...More

From Palm Desert to Warner Springs where Shadow Mt Winery is located is about 100 miles/2hrs. They do have picnic tables and a nice shaded area to sit and eat
