    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.

    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.

    I can't believe I have never been to this winery before, it is basically IN my backyard! Stunning location and building. The food was delicious, everything we ordered was uniquely and perfectly amazing! The wine was good, although I am not much of a wine drinker anymore so I am sure others can comment on the wine more than me. Our group is ready to make this a monthly visit!

    The venue is outstanding with calm, quiet, and peaceful views of the vineyards and the shoulders of Mt. Diablo. The food choices are limited but very good, however, there should be more GF and Vegetarian options. We had a Friday 5:30 reservation and were quite surprised when told our food order had to be in by 6, and we had to depart by 7 according to their permit. With some, not excessive, wait time for wines and food, we were eating and drinking in a hurry. This was not the relaxed, lazy experience we thought it was going to be, but perhaps it was in the website info, and we missed it. I will definitely return and suggest not making a reservation past 4:30. Our server, Kevin, was excellent and gave us a nice history of the winery.

    The view, food and wine were awesome. The wait staff was polite but our waitress was not very helpful and knew nothing about the wine she poured us. We did tastings and we got such phrases as “red blend” and she gave the same taste descriptions for all of the reds.
