We had a fantastic tour at Cakebread! From the moment you walk in you can feel the family vibe. Lisa, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure. You can tell the attention to detail and love they put into their wine. Don helped us out at the end and again made us feel like family. Highly recommend coming here! Not to mention the wine is amazing!!
Great experience with a red wine tasting with Sam. Wish we had done a full tour of the vineyard. Another reason to come back for a visit in addition to the amazing wines!
