“Quant, friendly, delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

We stopped in here for wine tasting and was greeted by a friendly woman who shared information about each wine we tasted. We visited a bit with her and bought some wonderful bottles of wine, The views around the tasting room were beautiful. Don't pass on these smaller wineries, you get a lot of personal attention...it was nice!

“Hidden Wine Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Many visits have brought understanding of small batch wineries and the passion that goes into these types of wine offerings. Michael Eckert does a superb job of making very affordable, tasty wine, for the so-called wine afficianado or for the novice. This little off-the-road winery deserves a look and a taste whenever you get to Livermore. Eckert Estate is on the West side of the valley and receives a-bit-less-traffic than the popular East side. If you need reference, Wente's restaurant and golf facilities are nearby. Try everything he has to taste and then buy a bottle or two of your favorite. Believe me, it will be affordable enough that you could still buy gas to get home and good enough to share with friends. Ensemble is one that I recommend to everyone. Stau awhile and chat with Vickie or Michael. They usually have Chocolate Truffles to purchase while you taste and there is Mustard tasting sometimes too. I rate this experience Very Good because it isn't average at all. Enjoy! A small tasting fee is usually refunded with your purchase...

“Small and Cozy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

This winery is small in size but the wines are, not-only a good value, but quite tasty. I recommend that you keep your nose in the glass here and not up-in-the-air because of the small size of the winery. A good selection and very affordable.
