Delicious but more traditional wines. The people there are very friendly and the tasting experience harkens back to the 1960s in Napa. Their dessert and sweet wines are especially delicious. We have friends from 50 miles away come to buy them here. One of five...More

Hecker Pass Winery is owned and operated by Sicilian octogenarian, Mario Fortino, just a few yards from the Fortino Winery, owned and operated by a relative. The tasting room is small, not full of kitschy stuff to buy...just wine to taste. Mario holds down the...More
