My family and I toured the ranch for a possible wedding venue and had a complimentary wine tasting as well. Although we didn't end up choosing this location, we definitely enjoyed ourselves. The location was beautiful and the wine is very good. Unfortunately, hard liquor isn't permitted at this location, which is a must for our wedding as we have... More

The bar was newly done, and gorgeous. The lady who poured our wine was really nice and informative of the local wine business. I bought the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Chardonnay.

We went with a large group, and because of that didn't get in line to order pizzas right away, and because of THAT there was a considerable delay in getting our food. The clerks / cashiers move quickly, so the line disappears quickly, but then there is a huuuuuge back up of pizzas ordered, and so it was - no... More

We arrived about 10 am and began our tasting. The tasting was well worth the $5.00 charge which was reimbursed with our wine purchase. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we spent about an hour roaming around and then sitting under the big trees just enjoying our surroundings. This was a good stop!

Went to a great wedding reception last month. Great food, beautiful location, great spread. They also have a small shop on one side of the property with wine tasting.

Four of us were traveling to Yosemite and made a quick decision to stop here. We spent about ten minutes looking around the grounds, admiring the trees, plants and gardens. Then Lynn served us the $5 wine tasting, our choice of five wines of their 12 or so available. The $5 could be used toward a bottle purchase. One of... More

Beautiful place for a wedding or special event. Not a winery, although they do have some vines planted and do offer wine and wine tasting for wines that have bottled for them. I enjoy the local events they do and painting classes.

This place went downhill from what it used to be years ago during Halloween. I also never received my promised refund from breakfast with Santa LAST YEAR, one year later. I also had dinner there over the summer with friends and family. We saw them bring out a very delicious looking pizza to the people next to us. I asked... More

I love the entrance of the wine tasting room. Olives and grapes line the gateway to your unforgettable wine tasting experience. Tom was doing my winetasting and he was fantastic. He knew his wines, was friendly, warm and very attentive. I recommend going to this place rather than the overpriced wineries in Napa. I lived in I Italy for 5... More

We stopped here after driving to Merced from LA. After 4 long hours in the car this place felt like heaven on earth! The wine was very good. I love whites and my friend loves reds. We both found wine that we loved. After the tasting we bought a glass and wondered around outside. Beautiful grounds with plenty of places... More
