Brittany was our tasting guide and she was wonderful. She was really knowledgeable about not just the wine, but the property as well. She could carry on a nice conversation and enjoyed laughing with us. I highly recommend her. It was my aunt's first time wine tasting and she was helpful and answered all of her questions.

Gorgeous location among the horses. We had the place to ourselves the day we were there (perhaps wildfires kept folks away?), so naturally felt very spoiled. Our wine connoisseur/server was a great conversationalist and knew everything about the vineyard and it’s background. Got to pet the horses and ultimately joined their wine club for their phenomenal wines!

Tamber Bey is advertised as a horse farm with a horse sanctuary on the premises and as an avid animal lover, this is completely false. The horses are kept separate from one another, many of them participate in cross-country racing (100 miles+!) and the tour guide that we had, Brittany, didn't even know their names. If it's inspired by and owned by horse lovers, it should be key in the tour

The wine tasting was nice and the place is beautiful. However when I made a reservation, the description stated that there was a “personalized tour” of the winery and stables. This was not so, and was one of the main reasons I booked this winery.

Highly recommend stopping by if you enjoy a more relaxed tasting environment surrounded by beautiful scenery, nice selection of red and whites.

Tamber Bey is a gorgeous property with horses that are happy and loved. We were greeted so nicely when we entered the tasting room and provided with options for our tasting and opted for outside under the ceiling fans. They were extremely attentive and didn't skip a beat on the timing of the pours. The background and stories were lovely and appreciated.

Cher was our hostess and sommelier and she was amazing. I brought my fiance and a select group of friends here for her birthday. Being a horse and wine lover this place just made sense. Discovered the location on google and figured why not. Best choice. The ambiance was fitting for a relaxing afternoon with friends, the smells of both a winery and a farm made a perfect fit for my country girl

We are new at visiting California wine producers and scheduled an appointment at Tamber Bey on the recommendation of a wine specialist in our town. We also visited, on an ad hoc basis, another vineyard based on a less-informed opinion we received. In the end, we found Tamber Bey to be everything we hoped and the other vineyard to be very disappointing.

First off, the location is beautifully breathtaking. It overlooks a mountain and the horses make it al idealícenlo place to visit. From there it only gets better. The wines are lovely and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. You can either ask a lot of questions and get them all answered or just sit there and sip away. Either way, you will be accommodated. Had lunch and it was great.

My husband and I arrived for our appt and was greeted by name from our wine expert Brittany. The grounds are beautiful and very quiet and serene. Brittany was knowledgeable but did not have all the answers due to the fact she had only been working for Tamber Bay for a week. Brittany took us on a tour of the stables and horses. Overall we had a great time & thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
