We stopped in for a tasting and ended up joining the wine club! The wines are really nice and we enjoyed visiting with the other tasters! One of the best wineries in CarmelValley!

We went on a wine hunt after being chased from Napa/Sonoma. We aren't big pinot noir drinkers, but really enjoyed the sauv blanc and the Marinus. Quite a difference in taste (and cost!) between the Marinus vintages. Get the 2012.
