With a history going back to 1860, many delicious wines and champagnes, and an informative museum full of interesting artifacts, this place is worth a stop. Friendly staff made our wine tasting a fun time. A large wine shop is located next to the tasting area, so it was easy to grab what we wanted to bring home. Unable to tour the cellars, but will definitely return again to do that. Absolutely worth a visit.
This is an older working winery. Many may be familiar with the name Great Western Champagne. It could use some updates in the seating area / entry, but really maybe it just adds to the charm. If you're looking for a lot of interesting information on wine, the wine making process and the tools and implements used for the same, this is definitely a place to go. You can garner a lot of information here. You can do tours and there is also a theater for learning more. Be sure to check out the stained glass window in the ceiling above the main bar/tasting area. We came as a group and did not have a reservation. They were able to handle 12 of us. Our server Dez was a lot of fun and knowledgeable on Pleasant Valley Wine and their history. With a group we were seated for our tasting. Five selections were provided for $5. A good selection of champagne and wines. It also included a small brownie sample and crackers. Definitely a good value. We all wrote our name on the top of our selections sheets, but to have some fun gave ourselves some different goofy names. I guess we amuse easily. The first winery in the US to pay taxes (US Bonded Winery #1).
Wow! Great tour and tasting! Fun to try so many sparkling and fortified wines! Definitely fun with the different wines in the area.
This group is the oldest winery in the area. (1860) I love they have a museum type section which we got look at local and world wine history at. Tasting were $5 for any five. The wines were good and lean more on the sweeter side. They got famous for their sparkling wine.
#1 Bonded winery in U.S.. great wines, prices. See a part of history. Tour a must but must make a reservation. Old buildings are beautiful. Champagne caves still intact. Staff is exceptional.
