Cabernet Sauvignon make up the majority of wines produced. Merlot, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and a few blends round out their red wines. Prices range from moderate to ultra premium. A Chardonnay and a very nice dessert wine (Nightingale) are also available.
Walk-in standard and premium wine tasting experiences are offered. Several private tasting options are available by advance reservation, including wine/cheese pairings, vertical tastings and others.
