Pros: The grounds are really gorgeous. The men on staff are professional. We enjoyed the many samples of whites, reds, and the yummy port. It is really special that all the wine samples were from P.C. Winery. Enjoyed a tasty glass of sangria with lunch, but would rather have had frozen bits of fruit instead of ice which waters down the drink. It was nice to have the keepsake glasses to remember our day. This was worth the TravelZoo price, although I would never pay retail for this.

Cons: The young woman at register with long straight hair wasn’t friendly and inviting when we entered. Sadly there wasn’t chocolate in basket. The young woman that guided the tour spent more money on her beautiful nails than professional pants. She was not as knowledgeable as expected and more interested in “drinking.”

Good tour--knowledgeable.

The wine tasting experience had ample tastings, was interesting and we had a lot of fun. We learned a lot and had a very good group of people that we didn't even know, but made for a very entertaining time.

The vineyard, the grounds and the house are beautiful. The staff very pleasant, professional and accommodating.

The wines were of good quality and the atmosphere was pleasant and peaceful without coming across as overly snobbish. Beautiful grounds!
