A nice place with gift shop, great food for lunches, several wines and beer for the tasting. Setting is just across from the ocean and pier with some open fields and horses that roam by the parking lot.

After a tour of Hearst Castle, we decided to stop at the Winery to take a bottle to our hostess for our next night's stay in San Francisco. Tasted a couple and bought a nice red that we sampled. Very helpful staff person.
