This was pretty winery with great views. This wasn't our type of wines and the pourer was pleasant and informative but not overly friendly.

Went to Sheldrake this afternoon and appreciated the knowledgeable service people that pour the wine and know the wine to discuss options you might like. Visit across the street the ramp and entrance to their beach access and boat ramp to the lake. We were traveling with our dog and she loved the easy access to the water although it... More

This was a stop on day 2 of our wine tour. We had a private wine and cheese pairing. Our hosts were very nice and we had an excellent presentation about the wines served with the cheese. The wines were on the dry side which I do not care for. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. Great opportunity to walk down... More

This was the first stop on our recent wine tour. They set the bar high with excellent service! They were very knowledgeable and shared in depth information about each wine, type, quality, etc. they were able to answer questions and gave information about the area.

They are in an absolutely gorgeous location. The staff is knowledgeable and their white wines were pretty good. Scenic outside area from where can enjoy views of the lake. Would visit again.

We stopped here on our tour and while we enjoyed their wines, the tasting and the cheese pairing, we weren't impressed with our pourer. He kept leaving us to attend to other customers so it was very slow. On our way out, someone in our group noticed that they offered a $3 tasting of their one of a kind, never... More

We called and asked if we could come in 30 minutes with our family of 8 (6 tasters) -- we were welcomed even though we were not a small group. We were treated to a wonderfully custom directed tasting by Rusty, who was fun and very informative. We enjoyed a bottle of the Dry Rose with our sandwiches on a... More
