We purchased wine futures in August of 2015 on a wine to be released in June 2016 to the tune of about $200. Now that our wine should be ready to pick up, all the contact listings are inactive or disconnected. Looks like time to file a fraud claim with our credit card company!

It is not luxurious. The place is "undergoing restoration" but they let us in for reasons unknown. We stayed four nights. The room was huge but amenities were lacking or poor. No clock or radio in the room much less a TV. There is a TV in a common area but the use was undecipherable. When we tried to use... More

We visited this winery in August 2015. They have wonderful wine, great pizza and the staff is fantastic. Then we made the mistake of joining their wine club. We live in Iowa and wine can be shipped to us so they signed us up. They immediately charged our credit card $ 364.66 which covered 12 bottles of wine in 12... More

We had stayed at Fitzpatrick's with the previous owners a few times, and enjoyed our stays. This was the first time back with the new owners. We booked the French Room for 2 nights over the Valentines weekend, it was also our 30th wedding anniversary. Michael was very helpful, and showed us all the new amenities in the room. The... More

We celebrated Brenda's birthday here the first weekend in November and had a great time. Breakfast was fabulous. Lunches, including pizza done in brick oven, are great, as is selection of wines. Mike, and everyone on the staff, was wonderful with just a lot of friendly, neat little personal touches to make our stay enjoyable, indeed memorable. TravelMonkeyCA's review comparing... More

My husband, daughter and her husband spent 2 nights at Fitzpatrick's in July. We actually had the place to ourselves and enjoy it immensely (not because we were alone, but because it is such an beautiful place). Mike and his dog Patrick greeted us with open arms and wagging tail as we arrived. Our rooms were absolutely divine and the... More

This is similar to a Napa vacation -- that is, if you wanted to spend $1,200 per night on a similar room in the summer and be stuck in crowds all day. Instead, it's the Sierra Foothills, with equally awesome wine and food, just a little more off the beaten path. The French room room was large and wonderful, with... More

Mike, "the man of all hats" was extremely welcoming and took care of everything from cooking a delicious breakfast, checking us in, and doing all the maintenance around the lodge. Everyone we met at the lodge was wonderful. I would not plan on going to this quaint B&B during the heat of the summer, however. The A/C system is too... More

Wife and I spent 1 night in the French room which is absolutely beautiful. Incredibly comfortable bed that was very difficult to leave in the morning.

“The French Room is the largest, and very nice”
 of 5 bubbles solanodoug, 25 Mar 2015 | Read review
“All rooms are very nicely decorated, appointed, and comfortable but our preference is definitely the upstairs French Room with panoramic view of vineyard and Sierras. It has its own balcony, a window seat/daybed, a cast-iron fireplace, and a truly luxurious bathroom; it gets good morning sun and is shaded in the afternoon.”
