From the moment you turn into the drive you have a pleasant experience ... the gardens are beautiful, sculptures unusual and eye-catching, the view of the mountains and vineyards serene, the architecture and displays indoors are beautiful. The wine was good, as well as the cheese board we had; and surprisingly well priced. Our waiter Francis was knowledgable, never making... More

Our group enjoyed a delightful mid-day wine tasting. We shared two of the platters. The views are spectacular. Take time to stroll in the gardens and appreciate the sculpture along the paths. Just beautiful and the wines are good too! When you make your reservation ask for a terrace table to really appreciate the views. But tasting inside is just... More

To be honest it almost doesn't matter about the wine which is good anyway, the key is the the sheer level of investment in creating an unbelievable property. The scenery is amazing and I can't think I have ever visited a more impressive winery.

There are a lot of options. Wine tasting was a long experience but tasty but only one red and the rest whites. The wines are great but...not enough red options. Our waiter/wine educator was Francis and we really enjoyed his inputs, knowledge and edification. The art is awesome but all the shopping is unnecessary in my view. The grounds are... More

We recently enjoyed wine tasting and 2 food platters at Delaire Graff. Delaire Graff is magnificent - the gardens, views and garden art all breathtaking. The wines were superb and the platters (cheese and charcuterie) excellent. The service was very attentive and knowledgeable, without being intrusive.We had planned visiting a number of wineries (Delaire Graff was #2 for the day)... More

Hard to convey just how gorgeous this winery is: meticulous and beautiful landscape architecture, stunning sculptures and art, breathtaking restaurant views, and last but not least a diamond store! I thought for sure they would be snobbish and either not let us in or ignore us once we entered due to our somewhat casual attire. Not at all. We were... More

This is not your normal wine tasting experience. The grounds are like a botanical/statuary garden. The winery is gorgeous. When did you last see a 101 carat diamond on display in a winery? Our wine host was a delightful young man named Gershwin who truly knew his wines. We love good wines and are frequent visitors to various wineries. This... More

Went up the hill to partake of the wine tasting of their products. Ushered table on terrace. Asked waiter if they had palate cleanser, bread or crackers. He pointed to the starter menu. The first item was olives, a dried sausage and bread sticks. I do not eat either of the first two and was going to spend 4$US for... More

The view here was stunning. Well worth the drive. We couldn't get into the restaurant so I advise you book in advance. An amazing place and the wine was delicious. We had tapas over looking the valley with wine tasting. Spectacular!!
