The tasting room was a small but cozy place. It is right behind a house, so a little informal. The staff were very laid back and friendly. My favorite wine was the chardonnay.
I do recommend stopping at this tasting room.

Very nice Italian varietals. Ve LOVED the Nebbiolo, but it was $45. Sangiovese was very nice, $25. Purchased the 2006 Zinfandel Sonoma County Reserve. It was $15 after the 50% off special. Small tasting room, and it was crowded. Not a bad experience though.
