Travelled from London to visit this winery. Felt rushed, didn’t finish one taster before the guy was waiting to pour the next one, didn’t wait for all of us to be seated before the wines were explained. Expected the glasses to change between wines. Expected...More

Very good food and wine pairing. Server was thinly stretched so we didn’t feel a lot of personal attention. Chefs who brought out food were more personable. Very skimpy onhos much wine they give you for each pairing. Overall good experience. Gorgeous landscaping.

We visited Kendall Jackson and were truly impressed with the facility. As with all the wineries now they charge you to do a tasting. But as an incentive to buy if you purchase two bottles of something that you tasted the fee is waived. Everyone...More

As a place to visit. The grounds are great lots of vines along a walking path. The chateau is inviting and bright. The wines are good examples of local avas. Only thing to spoil this was the tasting room staff...very knowledgeable but also very pushy...More
