Fodor's Review

The visitor center at Matanzas Creek sets itself apart with an understated Japanese aesthetic, extending to a tranquil fountain, a koi pond, and a vast field of lavender. The winery specializes in Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Merlot wines, although it also produces Pinot Noirs and a rich Bordeaux blend called Journey. All tours take in the beautiful estate and include tastings. The Signature tour concludes with tastings of limited-production and library wines paired

with artisanal cheeses. The ideal time to visit is in May and June, when lavender perfumes the air.

Good wine tour

We just passed by and decided to stop. Result: we are club members now. They have such a gooooood porter for members only... The guys have a very good tasting and tour. Tour is short and interesting enought even for our 9 year old boy. I have a feeling that tour is by appointment, we might just join someone else's tour.
