Nestled off the beaten path in the Livermore Valley, our winery is one of California’s original wine estates and has been growing grapes since the 1880s. All of our wines are sourced exclusively from our estate. We farm our vineyard and plant grape varieties according to the various microclimates on our property. This creates the winemaking palette for blending exceptional wines that truly showcase the unique characteristics of our estate’s terroir.

We went there as a place to meet friends we hadn’t seen in many years. The atmosphere was quiet and conducive to catching up. We tasted various wines (all delicious) and munched on a cheese plate and flatbreads (also, very delicious!). The staff was excellent, as always.

Love, love, love. First time I've been there since the remodel. Very nice. Colore me impressed. Always been a fan of Murrieta's Well and their wines. Seems like the new winemaker is making some improvements. I love the Spur and the Whip. Course the Zarzuela is my personal fav. Excellent red blend.

The staff is always warm and welcoming and I was proud to bring my friends there for their first time visit... they are considering membership, they enjoyed it so much. Thanks Murrietta!

The wines are wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful - this is a winery we will revisit again and again which, in my experience, is NOT a common response. Well done, Murietta’s Well!!

Great first visit as members! The food on the patio was yummy, service was great! We have been members at other wineries and the reason we end memberships is when we no longer feel special. It's the experience that keeps us members at a winery. You can always purchase wine if you like it, but to spend your time and money to be a member....it's all about the experience.

I would not recommend this to anyone. First, they took us upstairs to eat, then told us because we were not members we could not eat there, would have a "limited" menu, and sat us below. Then, after I presented an allergy card for sesame, they sprayed sesame all over our cheese board. On top of that, the wines weren't even very good. Extremely disappointing.

First time visit as new members went south when our server vaporized with no explanation, leaving us hanging without our purchased bottle of wine, nor knowing that the kitchen was about to close. Extremely dissapointed with how this was handled. Felt they could have done something to make up for this but again felt dissapointed.

When our group arrived we were immediately greeted with a glass of wine. We were then shown to the tasting room which was in a very atmospheric cellar. We were sat very comfortably at a large table and the tasting began. We were given a bit of history and then each wine was explained to us as it was being poured. The group bought three bottles after the tasting and lingered for a bit as well.

I was a little disappointed with the overall tasting experience. I booked the tasting at the wine bar because I wanted my friend to have the experience of a wine ambassador. Unfortunatelt our wine ambassador had no interest in engaging with us. We learned a lot more about the winery and what we were drinking from the ambassador helping the couple next to us. Ours was polite but did not engage

We had our business meeting in the barrel room and then enjoyed a great lunch up on the outdoor patio. The food was outstanding, and the wine even better. The afternoon was filled with team building activities - a great day!
