Tour & Taste at Our Estate


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.

Whether you just like to drop in, find a picnic table and enjoy a glass of wine, or schedule a private tasting experience, we offer options for all types of visits.


Daily 11am - 5pm
Last tasting at 4:30pm
