I really enjoyed Cline Cellars. I have been there twice now and neither visit disappointed me. The first visit was more of a family picnic with friends - Cline has excellent picnic facilities and is very family friendly with birds and animals to keep the kids occupied. The second tasting was on a wine bus, so definitely a more adult crowd focused on drinking the wines. Both visits were excellent. Cline is one of the first wineries you hit on the drive from San Francisco and is a very popular spot with tourists - usually the type of winery we try to avoid! It is popular with the bus tours. Typically the Carneros Region is planted with Pinot and Chardonnay, whereas Cline pioneered the planting of Rhone varietals such as Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. The wines are extremely good value and great everyday drinkers. Service on both of our visits was excellent and we got to taste a lot of wines - they definitely are not afraid to pour the wines. If you want a fun winery with excellent value wines and a short drive from San Francisco then Cline is for you. Recommended.

"Big Break is Indiana Jones with a Bullwhip". What a great description. This is a nice Zin with good tannins. Nice everyday wine again
