“Incredible wines at Frias!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We went by Frias on a recent wine tour and LOVED the vineyard. You will not find this vineyard unless you are really trying. They do not do public tastings. Mani prefers to do appointments with wine tours. We had a tasting at the top of the hill in the vineyard and it was great. No fancy tasting table - we were sitting around on tables made of wine barrels and 2x10's. And we loved every second of it. Mani was a great host. No hard sell here. Just great conversation and the wine speaks for itself. The Cab was one of the best we've ever tasted. You will not find these wines in restaurants or stores. They don't sell to them. The only way to find them is to taste at the winery or purchase online. This is a small vineyard but the wines they are putting out are fantastic!

“Unpretentious”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

Such a lovely place. We really enjoyed this experience. They have a lovely family style atmosphere outside with a large picnic table. We sat with another couple and we all were laughing and having fun. They let my 80lb dog roam around the property and never once made me feel like he was going to do anything bad. In fact, it was their idea to let him off his leash.
I am not an educated wine taster and the best part of this place is you don't have to be. Drew and Manny will give you as much or as little information as you want. Drew took us into the vineyards and let us taste the grapes. That was a fun first for us. I will for sure come back on our next trip.

“No frills, just great wine in a beautiful vineyard with a fun host”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

Manny was a gracious host. We felt like we had arrived at an old friend's place and he pulled out some wine while we hung out. just make sure you call and get good directions cause it is tucked away.
