The wines we tried were all delicious. We were treated kindly by the staff. It's a beautiful place, and their white pilot noire was really interesting!

My husband and I love Blakeslee! We've made many friends there and the atmosphere can't be beat. Bill and Sheila make you feel like you are part of the family. Best wine club ever!

Love this vineyard and their wines. I've been in their wine club for about two years now and enjoy bringing guests for tastings as well as the special club member events. The estate is beautiful and it is most enjoyable to sit by the pool and look at the mountain. Bill and Sheila are very welcoming hosts.

There are no strangers at Blakeslee. You feel at home about 10 minutes after you arrive because the staff is so friendly, willing to go out of their way to ensure a good experience. There is almost always an opportunity to meet the owners, who are incredibly gracious hosts. Pair all that with lovely wines and incredible views and you can't go wrong.

I finally got the opportunity to visit Blakeslee Vineyard last week after hearing so many great reviews about the vineyard and itsaward-winning wines.  From the beautiful location on the hilltop to the exquisite wines, the experience was excellent. Thank you to Molly for the welcoming and informative wine tasting experience. Joining the wine club was an easy decision. I have shared the Estate Reserve Chardonnay and Estate Reserve Pinot Noir with my wife Lauretta, and she agrees that the wines are exquisite
