Like Mawby, we always go to Two Lads. They have the softest shirts and nicest souvenir items. It's modern, clean and still comfortable. Restroom is large and clean. Husband always buys a couple bottles here. Nice view.

Another winery perched on top of a hill that offers a fantastic view from the tasting room. The server was well informed, and the wines were average

This was our first stop on our own, de facto, Old Mission Peninsula tour. We came, based on reviews of their quality red wines. We started here, as it was the farthest out on the peninsula that we wanted to try, and thought coming backwards,...More
