Small and intimate winery that's a little hard to find but worth the trip.

Liked the wine tasting experience. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sits immediately next to an old school house and has some views over the vinyards. Didn't like that my GPS took... read more

This was my first wine tasting experience, and I so enjoyed it. The wines were delicious, and the woman helping us was knowledgable about the wines and the winery. We went on a weekday so it was just myself, my friend, and the one employee working in the wine room so it felt like a very personalized experience. Additionally, the... More

Having consumed many glasses of our favorite Burrell School Zinfandel over the years, we decided to visit the winery in person. Their website announced the schoolhouse for which the winery is named is celebrating its 150 year anniversary. The winery itself is pristine and up to date. The schoolhouse is a private residence with no public access. The tasting room... More

Liked the wine tasting experience. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sits immediately next to an old school house and has some views over the vinyards. Didn't like that my GPS took me off in an opposite direction and we wondered about 10 miles out of our way on some really narrow roads. Someone elses GPS did the same thing so... More

There a thousands of wineries to visit in California and this is one of the best; definitely our favorite in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The wines are all solidly made, drink well with food and are an exceptional value. The wine club prices are a bargin. A visit to the tasting room is pure fun with a great staff. All... More

This winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains is still a hidden gem and their wines barely make it out of the Bay Area since they are so popular in the vicinity. After coming here for several wine tastings I had to sign-up for their wine club since all their wines are superb. Whether you like crisp or smooth whites or... More

The hostess was friendly. The wine was good enough to buy. Some of the wine was good enough to buy. I had a case sent to the house. It is ready to drink and Thanksgiving is just weeks away. The place is cute and there is a lovely view.

The wines are good, and it really is an old rural school house. Sit out on the deck, enjoy the view and sample some very nice wines.

You meet the owners, try their wine and walk around - we found it on one of our Sunday drives.

Nice usage of an old schoolhouse, very friendly staff. Wine was good, and certainly worth a stop when doing a winery tour along Summit Road, however, not our first or second choice.
