Our tour was interesting but disappointing for the price point. We went on a similar tour that was much nicer and much more interesting because of our tour guide. I wouldn’t recommend it. The best part were the swings out over the lake.

This trip was partially planned for my best friend's birthday and Fritz's definitely did not disappoint! I had made mention of her birthday on the reservation, but I completely forgot that I had done that as I made the reservation a month in advance. So, what a kind surprise it was upon arrival to see how our party had a few special touches add to our tasting.

Great Property, off the beaten path, with great view. Nice wine, probably 4 of 5, nothing that blew us away. We'll come back.

The building and grounds grab you as soon as you arrive. The tasting room is comfortable, neat and clean. Our guide, Leo, took us on a tour of the vineyards, property and underground. We liked a few of the wines and joined the club.

very small, took awhile for our male guide to warm up to us-ended up wonderfully. Our guide's sense of humor emerged and wen ended up feeling very special. The wines were unique here, very bright with acidity. I am a white wine drinker, but I drank the pinot noir here and it was the best in Sonoma.

Fortunately, the wines speak for themselves. We were assisted by a very new employee and she knew very little about Fritz, the wines or how to conduct a tasting. Even poured the red and white wines in the wrong glasses. Everybody is new, at some point. Hopefully she will learn quickly.
