When I was first informed I needed to visit Claiborne it was because they were home to a few German varietals. This led us to arrive around 4pm on Saturday afternoon. Plenty of parking available. Love that they have both an outdoor and indoor tasting...More

Our tasting host was sweet and we really enjoyed our time there including learning about the unique structure. The dry riesling and dry gewurtstraminer were so good, we sent home a case.
