We love the KJ wines back home including a friend who's a big Chardonnay fan. Great wine pourer--took time to explain the wines and took good care of us. Not the best vineyard view grounds...but the wines were superb!

Of the several wineries we visited, we enjoyed this the least. The place is nice enough, but not as beautiful as Ferrari-Carano and some others. The pourer was pleasant enough, but he didn't encourage us to linger. We were finished tasting in about 30 minutes,...More
