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.

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

Our corporate event was handled superbly by Sheila and her entire team! We arrived in the morning and were greeted with a fabulous white wine (perfect for 9 AM). 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!

Ron was our sever and was prompt to serve us, friendly and knowledgeable. We brought our coupon for an appetizer. We picked the squash flatebrad. It was DELISH! Can't wait to go back.

His customer service was superb and because of him, we are happy new members of MW's wine club. He deserves a raise!

Murrieta's Well is beautiful and has delicious wine! My only complaint is they tell you about their membership every time they pour you wine. Also, if you're not part of the club, you feel like a second class citizen. On the day we were there they were having a dinner and closing early. So they closed the kitchen. I wish they had kept it open.

Totally overpriced. Service was awful and they put a calculated tip at the end like at a restaurant. Our server didn't even pour our wine or bring us our food. We poured our own wine. The band took a an almost hour break. Total waste of 70.00!!! We will gladly keep going to Darcy Kent wine Wednesdays. This was awful.

Upon arrival we were not greeted...had to look around to locate hostess. Also, the barrel room was empty (no people), dark, and the doors were almost closed when we were seated. Also, it took awhile until we were approached by an attendant, at which time we asked if we could move to the members lounge where we had a later reservation. Fortunately, we were escorted upstairs however (see below)

We are long time members of MW & since the remodel it just doesn't feel as warm & welcoming. I also wanted to comment that the red wines that were in our recent shipment were on the sharp/sour side, but those same wines were great on site.
