Great way to try the grapes from the Hearst property by partaking in their wine flight tasting at the wine bar! There's also a small walk up/order window for salads, burgers, etc. Very cozy w/a few tables inside and some seating outside as well.

Stopped here for some lunch after visiting the Hearst Castle. The menu has a lot of offerings but we went with the hamburger. The hamburger was huge ( one is enough for two people!) and was made from Hearst beef. Great stop for a meal!

Beautiful Stop here: we had the burgers here all grass fed beef from the Hearst Ranch, very nice setting for a nice afternoon lunch, nice variety to choose from for snacks & lunch.
