If you're in the Rocklin/Lincoln area, this is a must see! Not only was Wise rated the best winery in California in 2015, they also have a very awesome tasting - 7 pours for $7! If you get a bottle (average is $25-35 generally), the tasting is complimentary. The tasting bar at Wise Villa Winery has less hours than the... More

We enjoyed excellent wine and surprisingly good food at this lovely foothill winery. The Tuscan style and vineyard view made this a memorable visit. Well worth the beautiful rural drive to this winery. There are many wineries and breweries in the area so you can make a day of it.

Beautiful vineyard and delicious wine. Wine tasting is reasonably priced and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The owner introduced himself to our group and poured our tastings. He was lots of fun and very kind. Great experience with friends.

My friend and I had lunch there on Sunday while on the Holiday Wine Trail event. The food and service were very good. We also did a wine tasting before lunch. All of their wine is excellent and the server helping us was great. I even joined their wine club!

If you think all the fine wine in Northern California comes from Napa/Sonoma then you need to take a look at the product coming out of the foothills of Placer, El Dorado and Amador counties. Wise Villa Winery in Lincoln is an exceptional winery with an approach to winemaking that is anything but normal. Spend a few hours here tasting... More

My wife and I had dinner there tonight based on their website that advertised a Friday night menu that included Cioppino. Well much to our disappointment there was no Cioppino on the menu. The waiter told us that the website needed to be updated. Really!!!! That was just the beginning of our BAD experience. I will say the decor was... More

This place is a little off the path but a great find. The wines are good and so is the food. We took an extra 3 bottles home!

And lunch was creative and delicious. Started with a tasting flight and enjoyed nearly every glass. Stopped for a wonderful fresh lunch and then bought Sangiovese, Syrah and Tempranillo. Quite worthy!

Great winery in a secluded area. Wines are on par and has great food. Tour us a must so you can see how this rural winery makes great wines better than its competitors in Napa.
