Came back for our 2nd visit today, brought some friends and everyone loved it. Good variety of award winning wine, beautiful area to walk around and explore while you sip your wine. Great atmosphere overall! Love this winery!

Alma Rosa is an adorable little place. When we first drove up we were a little concerned by what we saw, but when we walked in to do the tasting our minds were immediately changed by the rustic charm of the winery. Flowers and hidden spots of serenity are everywhere if you take the time to walk around the property while you are tasting the wines. Our friends were even able to walk their daughter down to see the goats in their pen (follow the path through the parking area). Our favorites were Pinot Gris and the second Pinot Noir from the "Varietal" tasting flight. The only negative we really had with Alma is the tasting room. The room we paid in was suppose to be the tasting room, however it is not inviting, looks very messy with all of the books scattered everywhere and is very small. Since it was a busy holiday weekend they had the varietal flight tasting in the business office which was not any better. Despite the tasting room(s), the winery is definitely worth checking out! The wine and over all atmosphere were fantastic! The woman running it was very generous and provided a military discount to our group even though they supposedly don't currently have one so thank you Alma!

When I went to visit this winery I thought it was just going to be another plain old winery I had never heard of it before so I had no idea what to expect. In fact this winery has produced many award winning wines and they taste like them too. My favorite wine I tasted was the Pinot Noir it is absolutely brilliant.
