Melissa and Cheryl warmly greeted us....on Valentine's Day at noon. Only challenge was the gate opening which required that I roll down the window in the pouring rain... it was challenging to hear the intercom...as my left arm got suddenly drenched. Loved the inside the barn heaters....warmed both our bodies and our hearts! Was attentively taken care of and the VD sweets were a hit!

We have enjoyed our visits to Bridlewood for several years, and joined their Wine Club on our first visit. The staff are all wonderful: very friendly and knowledgeable, and able to answer just about every question. The Club Members room was almost full when we arrived, but the staff still were able to warmly greet us and get us seated quickly. Wish I could remember our pourer's name: he was great!

My husband and I did the vineyard tour. We had such a great time - loved seeing the grounds and learning more about how to distinguish different varieties of wines. Kevin was our guide and was very knowledgeable and warm. We especially loved the blind taste test - it was lots of fun and something we hadn’t done before!

The grounds are beautiful but the wines don’t match the ambiance. Paid $20 for a tasting and felt that was way too much. I thought we were to get a tour when I registered but it didn’t happen. There are so many great properties in the area I’ll likely skip this one the next time.

The grounds are beautiful and the wines that were included in our tasting were absolutely delightful. From top to bottom in the lineup, we all remarked how consistently good they were. They were smooth and flavorful, and each one better than the one before. We loved the property, and our host, Sherrie was very personable and informative. After our tasting and tour, we became Wine Club Members!!

Great experience - not members and wished we could have had access to the lake as my wife doesn't drink (it's an allergic reaction). we went here because she loves vineyards that have lakes, horses, beautiful settings, etc. it's a great place for both of us as I love the surroundings as well. The wine exceeded my expectations. didn't join the club as I have too many memberships.

It couldn't have been better. After an entertaining sampling, we bought a bottle to go with the Thanksgiving leftovers we brought and basked in the sun picnicking by the lake. We followed that with a stroll around the coral and a second bottle under the porticos watching the sunset. Can't beat that now, can ya'?.

Just driving up to the property, you know this place means business. They were extremely hospitable, providing everything I needed to make something over the top special for my fiance. They even helped me track down a local photographer to take pics! We will be back!

Upon arrival loved it! The lady that set up my private picnic cabana and sold me two reserve chardonnay's and wine club membership was amazing! I'm only sorry I do not remember her name. Things went awry with our private tasting. The woman serving us was rushed and acted put out and bothered. I had 4 girls who had never been to a wine tasting ever and this was embarrassing.

First off, I am an avid wino - self-proclaimed, but everyone knows this about me. And yet, I'd never joined a wine club. I recently joined Bridlewood's, however, this past weekend. Now, one might blame the early afternoon buzz on this and one might be right. But honestly, Kevin, our vineyard and estate tour guide, was such a pleasure and large part of my decision!
