The spectacular view is second only to their superb wine. They make my favorite summer wine, the Late Harvest Chardonnay. They make my favorite hostess gift, Cherry Riesling. Their Barrel fermented Chardonnay is memorable and their staff is very accommodating and helpful. CGT does everything right and I absolutely love becoming out of town guests to their winery because they never disappoint!
This was my first time wine tasting and was so pleased with the helpfulness of our consultant! Loved the gift shop area and the view is spectacular. CGT is a must-stop on your wine tasting tour of Old Mission Peninsula.
Let me tell about this wonderful winery. We were there today in the heat of the cherry festival and their staff was not only personable but knowledgeable. Two to five groups of people and everyone had wine in their glass. And on top of that their team tag teamed the groups so their team work was impeccable. The wine was fantastic but the atmosphere made it divine.
