This place is really cool. Not only did I taste some really amazing port but I learned a lot about the process. Very educational. This place has been around for 70 years! Definitely worth the drive out there.

I would recommend you make this a last or near last stop on the wine trail. Since ports are General ain't much sweeter then regular wines. Every port sampled was delicious and the staff was very accommodating and informative.

What a treat to have a private tasting at Ficklin Vineyards. The people were wonderful. Lots of information, explanations and, of course, lots of great ports to taste. Got some good cigars too. Well worth the drive from Fresno.
