“Always a pleasure.”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This was our second visit and it certainly will not be our last.

We had the pleasure of having Jose serve us on this visit and he was a perfect mix of knowledge and personality.

If you have the opportunity to do a tasting here, plan on spending some quality time enjoying some superb wines.

“Impeccable Wine”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We decided to hit up Cardinale after word-of-mouth recommendation. Reservations are needed, but for good reason. The tasting is $50 per person for a series of generous pours, snacks and a little education on the winery. Bradley was our expert. He was welcoming, knowledgeable and very chill. No pressure for us to buy anything. The quality of the wine spoke for itself! We will most certainly be back. Be sure to bring a camera, the scenery and facility is unbelievable.

“NO RETURN EMAIL OR CALL”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

I tried arranging tastings for my wife and myself on two separate occasions via their web site. No one bothered to call or contact me on both times. As a chef in the trade I guess my money is not green enough? At least have the courtesy to tell me go pound sand!

“Gratifying Experience”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

After a curving drive, you enter into a beautiful stone house that sits perched on a rolling hill. The tasting is expensive but the wines are quite worth it. The cabernet franc was divine. There was no pressure to buy and the tasting was leisurely. We learned a lot about their wine and philosophy around it.
