Knowledgeable tasting

Small tasting room, but very knowledgeable staff. Love supporting small operators, and these guys have it going on. Wish them the best.

Los Olivos, California is a quaint little town with numerous wineries represented. Most of these are on the Main Street and that appears where most people congregate. It is worth it, however, to veer from the main path and visit one of the side streets to visit Tercero Wines. We thoroughly enjoyed the wines, especially the Grenache. The woman who... More

The winemaker /owner is a "Rock Star" of wine. If U have visited France and are a fan of wine varietals from the Rhone River Valley,you will especially enjoy a visit here. For fun loving wine fans..owner and staff makes one feel comfortable whatever your level of knowledge. For "ultra detail types", owner can talk science and other minutiae This... More

Just a quick note of thanks for the flattering review - and the kind words. We strive to make sure that our visitors not only have a fun time, but hopefully are given information to 'chew on' during their time with us. That obviously came through during your visit :-) Cheers! More

The Tercero tasting room can be easy to miss because it's away from most of the other Los Olivos tasting rooms. However, it's well worth a visit. We had an enjoyable tasting experience trying out their interesting wines. We particularly enjoyed "The Outlier" which is a dry Gewurztraminer and the "Verbiage Blanc". After you've finished tasting the great wines, just... More

Thanks for the kind words about our tasting room. Yep, I like to tell folks that we are 'The Hidden Gem of Los Olivos' :-) We are definitely the most 'hidden' tasting room in town, and we are somewhat okay with that - we don't spend our days just pouring for folks, but instead, get to spend quality time with...

This place is really something special! Larry takes an interest in all of his customers and is an outstanding human being. His wines are BEAUTIFUL! We feel fortunate to have accidentally stumbled upon this unique winery and we will be faithful wine club members for as long as Larry is working his magic.

The key to Tercero is to go during the weekdays. The staff and the winemaker are laid back and idiosyncratic--they will give you their opinions about just about anything, but they will also engage you in yours. Their wines and their wine club are equally their own. The wines are well-priced for the high quality. Larry does know his stuff.... More

Out of the 6-7 places we stopped this was probably my least favorite. The pourer was nice enough, but I felt like the conversation was more about their ideals and a little too heavy for me at the moment. It felt more like a bar than a traditional tasting room. Thankfully we shared only 1 flight because the first thing... More

Thanks for your honest review of tercero wines, our tasting room, and our wines. I'm sorry that your experience was less than stellar. Forgetting about the wines - it's all subjective - I'm sorry that you felt that my tasting room was more like a bar rather than a tasting room. I'd love to have you come back in -... More

Full disclosure, I have been a wine club member for several years. But every time I visit the tasting room, it only reinforces why I am a member. The wine is very good, and I'll put it up against any in the region. If you find yourself at the tasting room, you'll likely run into Larry, the winemaker. He is... More
