    We were booked for a canyon tasting, so a little disappointed when it got rained out! We tasted inside and were warmly greeted with a beautiful sitting area with wonderful cheese platters. We will be back!

    We have been members of the Pence Wine Club for several years, and really enjoy the tasting experience, along with the excellent wines. We frequent the area, along with Napa and Paso, and put the Pence experience with CA's best.

    Such a lovely setting. Rustic but hip at the same time. But even more than that, the wine was outstanding. Pence wine was far superior to all other tasting we did that day. Chardonnay is dreamy!

    Our experience at Pence was wonderful. Kristen was warm, welcoming and knowledgeable about all the wines. She made us feel like we were long time friends rather than customers. And we LOVED every wine more than the one before!
