    Very high end Napa quality wine grown in Walnut Creek for a fraction of the top wines on Napa but quite possibly better. Food is gourmet and the ambiance is such a resounding first class experience

    The staff was super helpful and willing to answer all of our questions and explain not only the wine, but the contents of the cheese plates as well. Service was very timely, when we were ready for the next pour the staff was already there, and we weren't rushed. The views were lovely. Overall a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

    Such a Beautiful place and in the neighborhood but unfortunately service is very unprofessional. Servers have been trained with some wine knowledge but they lack customer service skills. We may not go back, even as a member my friend was treated really harsh.

    I’ve been here a few times, and it’s a special experience! This time I went with two friends who had never been here, and we chatted with the chef for quite a while, sharing cooking tips and getting an inside look into how to dishes were prepared! That’s not something that happens every time you go out to eat. It’s a fun, cozy winery with a great selection as well.

    So beautiful, wine was delicious. We had the flatbreads and the charcuterie board, previous visit I had the burrata. The Chef was nice enough to check on us due to two people in our party with nut allergies . In our group it was the first time for 4 of them and they can’t wait to go back again!

    It was a very busy Sunday. We waited 30 minutes to get a menu. Our first tasting came at 45 minutes after we arrived. We ordered a Marguerite Flatbread. It came right away, but no fresh tomatoes or basil was more like a cheese pizza and a little burnt on the ends. Overall we were disappointed in the whole experience.

    Great server Christine was very disappointed that after calling and specifically asking to be seated upstairs as wine club member was seated downstairs even though there were 2 upstairs tables empty held for other parties obviously more important than we were but experience was good a simple call ahead of time regarding seating could have avoided any disappointment rather than just changing seating that was promised to us

    My friends and I greatly enjoyed our wine tasting and the food. Tim, the owner, was our server. He shared his passion for his art with great wit and energy. Some of our group were very opinioned and he educated us all and took their opinions well in stride. The chef introduced us to our charcuterie plate and added lots of special insight. I love having this gem so close by.

    The venue itself is gorgeous, especially for Walnut Creek. I had to pay for my reservation, $25pp THEN pay for tastings on top of that. Total $200 for a few wine tastings & charcuterie board. An expensive day. I wish they didn’t charge for the actual “experience” reservation.

    We were seated for dinner at 5 pm and didn’t see a waitress until 5:40. Actually I saw her she was just talking to the table across from us. I finally had to go inside and ask if we could order a glass of wine inside since no one was helping us outside. The setting is beautiful but it’s a shame the food options are so limited. Charcuterie plate $50 was very average. Poke’ was not good. Wine was decent. With better service this place is average but below average the night we tried it due to poor service.
