    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!

    Pence Winery is the quintessential old-style tasting place. You should definitely book the canyon tour, it's only $10 more but offers so much more than the tasting room (which is also beautiful). Having a personal host is terrific!

    It was an extremely enjoyable experience. My group was treated beyond well. We are big fans of the wines but were blown away by the hospitality. Great attention to detail.

    What an amazing experience! The wines were wonderful. The property is gorgeous and above all our experience with Linda could not have been better. She was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. It far exceeded expectations!

    At one point we had 3employees engaging with us. Our wine pourer was a delight and new exactly how to craft the story of the vineyard and suggested delectable food pairing with each wine. I thought the experience was luxurious.

    I have been meaning to go to Pence for awhile now but never got around to it. Boy was that a mistake. The grounds are beautiful and the wine was amazing! Claire is extremely knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic tour and experience.

    From the vineyard tour to the outdoor tasting with a beautiful charcuterie board - this winery was incredible! Josh was so knowledgeable about all the wines and made it a wonderful experience.
