So much fun! This was an impromptu trip so we didn't have an appointment but they were able to squeeze us in for a tasting. Our guide was warm, knowledgeable, and humorous. The grounds are beautiful and the wine is fantastic. Mike Grgich even showed up to sign bottles! After when we were waiting for our uber, the woman behind the check in desk brought us water. Everyone was so nice!
Really fun tasting room with great variety of wines. Gustavo was a wonderful host who walked and talked us through each wine and peppered in fun anecdotes along the way. The Californian wines are all very good and we also tasted a few of their Croatian wines, which was an unexpected and fun extra. We ended up getting a bottle of the Croatian Posip.
