Food was quite yummy and enough to share with our whole group. Wine was also pretty good, I wanted to try a few more as they peaked my interest. We did purchase a bottle when we returned to Florida. And the outside was so pretty that we stayed outside instead of the club as it was such a nice day out but the inside was quite pretty itself.

As a wine club member, I scheduled a seated tasting and pick up my shipment. Overall, I love this property and the wines. We were greeted warmly and ushered to a table. Service was extremely slow, in spite of our tasting being scheduled. We ordered from the food menu; which came out relatively quickly, however, the wine tasting itself took a very very long time with gaps where we had no wine.

Murietta's Well was a delight! We did the Food and Wine Pairing tour and really enjoyed the experience. The guides and staff were personable, knowledgable, and genuine. The wine was great and the food bites were delicious and well-presented. We also really enjoyed the setting - simple, tucked away, and not too much commercialization or branding. Really a lovely relaxing afternoon!

What a lovely experience we had! We have very fond memories of Murrieta’s Well as we were married there, so this visit was to celebrate our anniversary. The remodel work they did is spectacular. None of the charm has been removed, but LOTS more functionality and pleasant spaces to gather and enjoy the surroundings, wine, and tasty snacks. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, but not pushy.

Having been wine club members for a number of years, this was not a good experience. Our server appeared to be new, (Ingrid), we needed to get her attention to both be served the next selection in the flight and to order food items to go with the wine. The final reminder was required when we had almost completed the flight to get the final food item ordered. We usually receive excellent service

The hike through the vineyard was wonderful! We were greeted by our host who not only helped serve us an early morning refreshing glass of wine but also gave us the history of the buildings and grounds. The hike itself was not difficult and only lasted 1.5 hours. Tasting grapes from the vines was a nice bonus -- they were delicious! Expansive views of Livermore Valley were breathtaking.

We had a food and wine pairing which was excellent from start to finish. The food was delicious and paired well, though often unexpectedly, with the wines. The service was superb and we had a lovely experience overall. We had some special needs (wheelchair access, different tastes in wine) that had to be met and each one was addressed and handled professionally. Very fun!!

Daniel poured for us and purchased a half-case is assorted reds. The c-board was tasty, as was the chicken flatbread, even though I’m not a big fan of curry.

Murrieta's Well is a beautiful winery with great hospitality. They start your tasting experience with a glass of Sauv Blanc at the door and then escort you to your tasting. We tasted in the Tasting Room which was upstairs and offered a great view of the vineyard. Only downside is that they do not allow food to be served in that room...a real miss which is why I'm giving an overall rating of 4.

It was my daughter's 21st birthday, and Rob made her feel very special on that special day. He was so good, in fact, that our friends who attended with us joined your club. I'm looking forward to visiting again soon.
