Loved the wines here and the resident cat. Take the time to do a walk about the property. The reds here were exceptionally good.

The space inside is beautiful (an old barn) but the wines themselves were just average in my opinion. I also didn’t find our server to be very personable nor did he feel the need to really explain the history or types of wine in detail....More

Thank you for your kind words about our barn, ilovedgreece. We work really hard to make it as beautiful as we can. I'm sorry the wines where not to your taste. Wine is subjective. Derek Barnet, our winemaker, was not only appointed Winemaker at Karlo...More

You must go here, the wine is delicious, the customer service is fantastic and we really enjoyed the food pairing that Karlo's provided. Cannot say enough about this winery, go! Try all the delicious wines, but save room for the port too!

While not overly struck by the wine, our server - Kathy - was a game changer. She gave us some fried onions with the Gwertz that caused the whole group to buy it on the way out. She changed the way I looked at the...More

My fiance and I stopped here as we toured the wineries of PEC and area. We heard about their critically-acclaimed wine and how they let you pair your tastings with different snacks. The service was friendly and attentive. I really enjoyed the cabernet sauvignon and...More

Hi Jennifer, We do not charge for tastings if you buy two bottles of wine. This is stated at the beginning of the tasting by our wine steward, it is printed on our menus and is on all our chalkboards. As for the Pinot Noir,...More
