“Amazing gardens and building, good wines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

This is the classic overwhelming winery with classical porticos and beautiful views of the vineyards, and an enormous cellar you get to walk through, even a private room for club members. Giant gift shop. The wines are quite good, but strangely not really the star here. This is THE winery for gardeners to visit, though. Then go to Coffaro a few doors away for the funky alternative if this is just a little too Disneyfied for you!

“Great wine, beautiful gro!unds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

I love their fume blanc, but they have many other wines to try. Tasting fee is reimbursed if you buy something. Beautiful grounds and OK weather, even in January!

You must see the gardens and lanscape here! There are 2 bars to try wine. Be sure to go downstairs to see the wine cellar!
