Famous Winery for its Jazz fests. Very reasonably priced, and a delicious chocolate wine can be found here. A flight of champagne will cost around $23 and wine flights from $14

the wine tasting is decent. the cost of the wine tasting is average with all others in the area. the food, thats a whole other story, for what you're paying i promise you will be disappointed. Not at all worth the money. not even the dessert. nice jazz show though.

I frequent Thornton and Cafe Champagne frequently. Relaxing place to dine and wine taste at the same time. I highly suggest the hamburger and the steak sandwich! Staff is always friendly.

The restaurant at Thornton Winery always has a selection of great food for the refined palate. The executive chef adds a bit of elegance to every plate, and the service is always great. Pair these with Thornton's wines and sparkling wines, and life is good. Be sure to check out the Champagne Jazz series, too.

As my wife was not at home, I went to the Cafe Champagne with some good friends for Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Nice place for a bite to eat and a way to get settled into the wine tasting mode before starting the tasting. Right the beginning of the trek, so great place to stop on the outset.
