Pilot Peak Vineyard & Winery Description

At Pilot Peak Winery, they believe that wine should be enjoyed relaxing with food, family and friends.

Comparative Tasting is a private and relaxed tasting "method" that allows visitors to savor, compare and contrast each wine being tasted.

While enjoying their beautiful tiered, stone-walled terraces, you will be able to sample a flight of their finest award-winning wines served four-at-a-time, in numbered glasses. The numbers on the glasses match the tasting notes provided to help guide you through this tasting Experience.

A small plate of appetizers adds to the "Experience" and provides the opportunity to appreciate the delightful interactions created by the marriage of food and wine.

Once you have tried this "Complimentary" Tasting Experience -you'll never want to settle for those same ol' tasting room samplings again. Check them out!

Overall Impressions
Mr. Matt Mello
If you want to meet the nicest people in the wine industry and enjoy your wine in an outdoor setting on an oak tree covered terrace then I highly suggest that you visit the Pilot Peak Winery. The owners and staff are friendly,very knowledgeable and will treat you the same no matter if you are a first time taster (as I was) or a well seasoned connoisseur and answer your questions. The events are fantastic with live music, a dance floor and of course great wine. Good times to be had by all. Who knows? You may end up being a "Peaker".
