I have visited Tara Winery several time over the past couple of years. I have always found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I enjoy their wines that I have a friend who travels to that region regularly and she always picks me up more bottles of wine. Love the wines and love visiting

We stayed in the cabin - a nice two room get-away on the edge of the property. Very private and quiet. The driveway to the cabin is hard pack gravel, which could be a challenge for low profile vehicles (we took it on a large motorcycle without any problems other than holding our breath!). It was a small distance to... More

This is a fantastic winery. They import grapes for many of their wines and they are very, very good. They also grow grapes for some of their wine. Their is a great restaurant here for dinner. They have everything from a $12 burger to a $40 steak and it's all good! They have a great patio with live music often... More

Tara Vineyard and Winery is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon, leisurely drinking a bottle of their wonderful wine and admiring the view from the patio. So relaxing. My favorite is their Deck Wine for hot summer days! Bring some friends and stay for dinner! No stuffed shirts or wine snobs allowed! Often perfect strangers will strike up... More

I read alot of bad reviews and had braced myself for a multi-problem stay and decided to go with the flow and an open mind. We are from Orange Texas and this was our first visit. We are in our 60's. We had a wonderful stay, ate wonderful food, and enjoyed visiting with Taras wonderful staff. I cannot think of... More

At this time, there was not any diners but us which we loved because of the individualized attention we received. The were other customers taking tours and sampling wine,but we loved taking our time without noise from other tables being filled. It's... More

My wife and I stopped at Tara on the way home from a day in Athens. The grounds are stunning. The B&B looked really nice, maybe we'll try it sometime. We sampled every wine on the menu. We liked most of them but found 2 we liked enough to buy bottles. We decided to stay for some dinner. I had... More

We arrived early and stayed late. The food was wonderful, and then service was friendly and prompt. We all had a chicken dish and took half of it home! Little pricy, but for a special occasion it was perfect. We will go back when in the area.
