Really nice relaxing area. Fancy place in the country. Wine tasting was great. We bought several bottles to take home. Would recommend highly.

My husband and I were up from Florida visiting his family and we decided to have dinner at Ertel Cellars since I had never been there. The wine tasting bar was a real treat to experience while we waited for our table to be ready. Our dinner was excellent. I had the Rib-Eye special topped with grilled shrimp. my husband... More

This was our second visit and we enjoyed it as much as the first. Beautiful area, good food, my wife likes the wine, and her family lives nearby. Crowd was surprisingly reasonable for a Saturday night, but reservations are a good idea.

We love going to Ertel's! They have a fantastic brunch on Sunday. On Saturday evenings their entree's are always great, but if you are trying to save a couple of bucks go at lunch on Saturday. Great winery, but if you are looking for a quiet place, this isn't it. It has a very open concept which seems to swell... More

We had brunch today at Ertles Winery. It was very good. Reservations suggested. They had everything from omlets to prime rib. The dining area was very clean and the service was very good. The price was very reasonable for the quality of food served. I would highly recommend this Bistro for a great dining pleasure.

We traveled here on a Friday evening to taste some wines, sample the food, and to enjoy the surrounding countryside. We were not disappointed. The woman who did the tasting for us at the bar was very knowledgeable and friendly. We tasted perhaps 4 or 5 wines before we sat down for dinner. The food was also very good...but I... More

Food is only So-so, and the only adult beverages offered are their wines - no beer, no mixed drinks. Location is great thought. Need to make more of the patio.

We have been here for dinners, Sunday brunch and the Wine Festival. Always great food and great service! The food is a little bit pricey but you get what you pay for! I have never been disappointed! Everything is delicious and the service is exceptional. If you get a chance to visit, it is well worth it!

I stumbled onto Ertel's plum wine at an art festival and fell in love with it. Plum is a unique flavor must wineries do not offer. I had always wanted to go to their winery, but it was a 3 hour drive. I finally made it and must say it is a very nice place. The interior is beautiful. The... More
