We stopped by here after lunch and enjoyed their wines. The server was very nice and knew her wines. They also have a nice view. We were impressed with their whites and rose. The reds were okay.

We spent a Saturday tasting wines wine on Pleasant Valley Rd. This winery has a nice tasting room with good wines. It would be great on a hot day to taste and then picnic under the huge trees with view of the Sierras.
