I booked an overnight stay at Tara Winery for my anniversary. We arrived mid day on a Saturday after having lunch up at the Brewery (owned by the same people) in town. We made it a few minutes before the tour started. Patrick, the owner,...More

Wine quality far better than expected . Tasting overpriced. Dinner average to good, Sea Bass above average, Steel head Dry. Appetizers excellent. Service very attentive and knowledgeable. Good description and interpretation of their Wines . Purchased a number of selections. Don't go for entertainment.....😏

Wine was leafy, service decent, prices for the quality of wine and food, less than par. If your going to charge $25 for a meat and cheese tray, try better quality than bologna and 6 tiny slices of cheese. I cannot imagine how hard it...More

The winery was great and tasty. Dinner was delicious, my husband had the ribeye, which was bigger than the plate, and I had the sea bass, melted in my mouth. They were even kind enough to box up a couple eggs with our steak leftovers,...More

Met the owner and she did our wine tasting. Took friends who had never been. It was our 15th visit. Loved the pork chop. Friends love the wine. Only issue was getting out after fireworks show. We had to detour.

We went to Tara for a weekend getaway, and I am now recommending it to everyone I know! The vineyard tour was intimate and knowledgeable. But let's talk wines. They have a large variety, and we found good whites and reds. The Blanc du Bois...More
