Wonderful setting. This is the oldest premium wine winery in Ca. The buildings are historic and well cared for. Plenty of space for picnicking and enjoying a bottle of great wine. Child friendly.

We did. The Count was great. There were eight of us and we all enjoyed this a lot. We plan to take friends next month so they, too, may enjoy this fun, informative experience.
