“Yay, organic...but mostly daily drinkers here”

Heller Estate Organic Vineyards
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This place has very nice staff, and the tastings were good, all organic. The area (Santa Lucia Highlands) usually has great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to name a few. With that, most have a distinctive minerality to the wine, and some well crafted ones also have an herbal or spice note as well, not too dry or sweet. Unsure if the organic played a part here, but though drinkable and not too expensive, none had the character I was looking for. Nonetheless, popular with tours as they have a nice grassy area to eat, drink, and recharge (and yes, potty break). Cute tasting room also.

Our second time visiting the Wine tasting room in Carmel of Heller Vineyards was as pleasurable as the first. We aren't necessarily into organic foods, but Heller makes some lovely wines at a decent price point. Our tasting experience was low-key and all of our questions were answered without any snobbery or condescending tone. I certainly am not a wine connoisseur but do know what my tastes are.

We decided to join the wine club and received the discount on the spot for the purchase of 6 bottles and we paid for them to ship to our home. Upon arrival of our shipment, there were only 5 bottles instead of six. A call to Rachel at Heller and our 6th bottle was on it's way at no extra cost to us, along with a very humble apology. That is customer service!

If you wish to taste wine in a quaint little tasting room in Carmel Valley, check out Heller.

Lovely, local winery that does not use anything but organic growing products. Wine is truly the best I have ever tasted. We joined their wine club on the spot. Great little gift shop also.

Heller does a great job with their tasting room. The staff is warm and welcoming, and the wines are excellent, well worth a stop here on a wine-tasting tour.

This place is a great place to stop by and enjoy a very unique blend of wines that are all organic. If you are concerned with what is in your wine, stop by here and learn.
