From the tree-lined path that escorts you off of the main road and out of the “real world,” to the historic El Alamo Pintado Adobe that serves as our tasting room, to the gentle sounds of rustling vines, live music, and new friends mingling over a glass of wine, our tasting room experience is unlike anything you’ve had before. In fact, we feel it’s the absolute ideal locale in which to enjoy our wines.

At Rideau, we offer a complimentary tour with every tasting. Our experienced tour guide will take you out to our vineyard where you'll learn about how we grow our grapes, and into the winery where you'll learn the fundamentals of winemaking and what makes our process here at Rideau so special. On Saturday and Sunday, tours run three times at 12:30pm, 2:00pm, and 3:30pm, and two times during the week at 1:30pm and 3:00pm.
We welcome walk-ins for groups of 6 or less anytime. If your group is larger than 6, please contact us in advance to let us know so we’re prepared to serve you.
For a more personal experience, we accommodate table service tastings for groups of any size with a pre-paid reservation. Your table will be ready upon your arrival. Enjoy a reserve tasting at your leisure, or pair it with our excellent charcuterie plate.
Our picturesque estate is available for weddings, private parties, dinners, and other events. Please provide some details and we will contact you.
