Gouger Cellars Winery and Restaurant reviews
My wife discovered this place a few years back and we keep going back again, and again, and again. We are now wine club members! Wines are excellent and I have found a few I can drink (I am not a... more »
We went for the Fri special, bought a bottle of Chardonnay, and had the prime rib dinner $12, Artichoke dip $7, and the Warm Brie $7. Was enough to fill three adults, finished it off with the warm... more »
My first time here. Today was "release day" with some great food on the side and incredible pours to taste. My friend Don introduced me to Gary the owner. What a great man and very talented winemaker! His staff was very friendly and engaging. The place is beautiful! The wines were great and they have a great menu. I hear Friday night Prime Rib is to die for! I had to become a wine club member! The wines were too good to not take home today and I look forward to the next release! Great job Gary and crew!
We tasted 4 of the wines with a "Splash" in the glass...most of the bottles were 2017 vintage none were ready to drink, in my opinion...we settled on the 2015 Syrah for $55 a bottle... it was way way over priced for the quality...and the taste to me was not good - overly Jammy, all fruit, all juice, not bold - We thought it would get better after opened it didn't...I believe the fruit was sourced from California...I guess I'm just more used to local Syrah's from Walla Walla and Columbia valley. We noticed others that were there loved the wines... So we gave 1/2 of our bottle to the table next to us...I hope they enjoyed it...and I'm sad we didn't. The Staff was friendly and helpful - The atmosphere was very good. The $12 prime rib dinner was microwaved to be warmed up and served medium, not medium rare ( no red). The Syrah did not work with this meal which is why we bought it. Our 2 star rating is for the Staff and the atmosphere. In reply to the owner...we saw the microwave being used - that is a fact!. Just by you questioning my integrity and honesty tells me what you really think if customers that doesn't like your product or didn't have a 5 star experience. If you would have invited me to come back and try again I would have...but not now...I was totally open to letting my friends discover your wine (because no one has to like what I like - unlike you) but I will now steer my friends away from your business...not because of your product but because of the way you responded to my review.
