Beautiful setting and landscaping. Lots of wood inside and a very nice fireplace. There is indoor and outdoor seating all of which is very inviting. The tasting experience, however, left something to be desired. It’s all very impersonal and mechanical. You place your order at the bar. For a tasting, they fill up the glasses to a specific amount, place them in a tray with a printed piece of paper with descriptions and off you go to find a table. There is no opportunity to ask any questions about the wines. Unfortunately, none of them made us say “Wow” so we didn’t purchase any bottles. On to the next winery!
excellent location and good wine!
Wanted to try some Oregon wines so we stopped here for a taste. The staff was excellent and the wines were good. The grounds are inviting , well worth the visit for a nice afternoon.
Their reds were our favorite...
Beautiful grounds with amazing outdoor space and a tasting room that feels like a big airy lodge. This was one of five wineries recommended to us by a friend in the wine industry. We arrived mid afternoon on a Friday and there were groups of people but it did not feel crowded. Due to the heat we opted to taste indoors - they offer up private tables and you place your flight tasting order at the bar. We started with a white/red flight and quickly determined their whites were not for us. We ordered a second flight of just reds and that's where we found our winners. I will say I am disappointed that we were charged for 2 tastings even though we purchased a case of wine. The wine tasting experience in Oregon is very different from our tasting experiences in Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robles. Not in a bad way - but just different.
Great wines & ambiance
Surprisingly large variety & tasty wines. Personable pourers and a very inviting tasting room with outdoor seating too! Definitely worth the detour off I-5!
A Wonderful Winery Experience
The Schmidt family has created a beautifully landscaped family friendly winery in the heart of the Applegate Valley in Oregon. Their award winning wines are wonderfully crafted. They also offer delicious food, music on weekends and fun events throughout the year. We are members of their wine club so we visit and enjoy often. I highly recommend this winery.
