Rideau Vineyards Description

Home of the historic Alamo Pintado Adobe, Rideau Vineyards presents its Rhone, Spanish, German, Italian and Burgundy-style wines in a wonderfully restored Victorian adobe farmhouse.

The owner’s New Orleans roots permeate the eclectic public rooms. The rambling house has a reserve tasting parlor, fireplaces, a kitchen, patios and tasting bars filled with antique furniture, exquisite heirloom pill boxes, Mardi Gras beads, and plush oriental rugs. Bags of dried red-eye beans and other Creole food items are for sale.

The winery’s grounds are extensive, with towering ancient oak trees shading expansive lawns dotted with tables and chairs that provide visitors with abundant views. A wide range of wines are presented including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Viognier, Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sangiovese and Rhone Blends.

My review
jenna, los angeles
The cost was way to expensive! The woman who served us was drunk, she admitted it. She kept pouring all the wines in the same glass, we NEVER got a new glass for the different wines so they were ALL poured in the same nasty glass. I wont go back!

I enjoyed the tasting room, and the outside grounds. The gift shop could be much improved. The staff was friendly. I recommend all of their wines.

Rideau does not have any kind of decorative theme, but I am someone who desires decorative symmetry. Visit here if you enjoy a varied atmosphere. I did enjoy the wine. Try the Tempranillo.
