Our first stop in a small cluster of wineries in that area. It seemed to have a local following. The Tasting glasses were a mixture from other wineries. They really were foodie oriented. We did a tasting and weren't overwhelmed by any varietal presented. The...More

This place certainly needs some way finding signage. We went past the parking area for the tasting room thinking it was overflow parking and traveled very far down a gravel path before struggling to turn around. A simple 'employee only' or 'tasting room' sign would...More

Super cute and eclectic. Knowledgeable staff and Good wine. Off the beaten path. It was raining when we went so we were elbow to elbow at the bar but the staff made sure everyone was taken care of.

This winery did not turn out to be what I expected, but we had a great tasting. The sign does not say Gabriele Rausse, it is just an open sign hanging from a crane. And the tasting room is glass walls on three sides. So...More

Our wine tasting was so enjoyable because of Tim Rausse, the owner's son. The wines were also very good. The tasting room is small and our group of eight sat at a large table. Apparently you can also eat a lunch or have a group...More

It’s tucked away, but is really well worth the hunt. Do a full tasting, because there are gems among both the reds and the whites. Plus, you get to sample a sourdough baguette, baked usually by one of the Rausse sons. The space itself is...More

We were visiting the Wineries and were advised we should make this a stop. It was a little difficult to find but worth the effort. Wine and food pairing were excellent. Every wine we tasted was good and several were excellent. It was a lovely...More

I seem to recall $8 or $10. We went on a Saturday, and they has a food pairing option, which was a bit more expensive (may have been $15 but definitely worth it!
