excellent wines, beautiful setting – They poured 7 wines and all were excellent. Usually wineries will excel at one or two wines and rest will only be okay. Here every one was terrific. Beautiful setting and young, friendly staff completed a wonderful visit. Third time touring and tasting here.
Don't go – I was there a month ago. It was a disappointed experience. Their staff were armatures just pouring wines to the glasses. A bunch of young crowds rushing to the tasting table. It was rather being in a no-class, cater-to-air-heads bar in Hollywood. Once going wineries was a completely different experience. You could expect finding a peaceful place and time and getting know their wines by asking questions to the knowledgeable & friendly staff. I feel sorry for people who go there now. They think they are experiencing a "winery" because that's their standard. If you have ever been to a winery before Sideways released, don't go.
Busy mainstream – If you want to experience a busy, mainstream place, go there. Just don't expect a "family vineyard" atmosphere there. We went there Sat early afternoon - place had tons of people, vine tasting was more like having a burger at McD. The place is done really nice, though - good for pictures, weddings, etc.
