I’ve been here many times. The wine was good, the pizza good, but the service was awful. I’m a server, and so easy to please, so it takes a lot to upset me. When we ordered our pizza, it took well over an actual hour to get to us. We would have to get up to order more wine, and drinks. Our server wouldn’t come to check up on us... I’m telling you, an hour would go by without a simple check up. It was horrible. And it’s sad because I haven’t seen my best friend in a long time, and this was our experience we shared. I talked this place up, only for this to happen. Not happy.

Very nice environment, staff was nice and attentive. They were sold out of all white, all fruit/dessert, and most red wines. I’m not a fan of dry reds so we went to a different winery down the street.

So sorry that we did not have the wines you enjoy available at this time. As a small boutique winery we do sometimes sell out of some vintages, especailly this time of year. But I am glad that you found one of our sister wineries that had wines available that you enjoyed. We are fortunate that we have such a terrific and vibrant wine region in this area. So much to enjoy and explore! We look forward to seeing you in the Spring when some of our sweeter wines are back! Thanks! Scott

I went to Auburn on Valentine's Day for with the wine and chocolate pairing in mind. We had an outside reservation. When we arrived, we checked in and were offered an inside table if we would like. We ended up being in a back room with wine barrels and romantic lighting, it was incredible! A lot of their wines were sold out because of the pandemic, which was fine with us because there were lots of other wines to choose from. Half the menu was sold out and we still went home with 4 bottles of wine ! I just love Auburn, this was our third time there but first in the pandemic and it did not disappoint.

Holy smokes, Chelsea - thanks so much! We are so excited that you enjoyed everything! And the Barrel Room is really lovely and kind of like a secret little hideaway inside Auburn Road. It is obviously mostly used for making and aging wine but it is so much fun when Jules (our amazing winemaker) lets us use it when there is space. We look forward to seeing you again next time!

I love this winery. But we got sat outside, not near a fireplace. Although we were offered blankets, we froze the whole time. Should not have had outside seating.

Auburn Road Vineyard. Winery. Enoteca.
Responded on February 22, 2021

I am so sorry to hear that you were cold!! We have firepits near every table free of charge. If it was not lit for some reason or had burned out, please let any one of our staff know and they will light it immediately! With all the COVID related limitations, most of our seating has to be outside and a combination of the wind breaks, fire pits and blankets (and dressing warm...) is the best defense against the cold! And hopefully Spring will be here soon! Scott

We go to Auburn often especially when Ravello pizza is there. Stopped in for an early Valentine’s Day. Half of their wines were sold out which seemed odd. They said it was because of the pandemic but I remember this being the case in previous years. We were fine though & ordered a bottle of red plus I had 2 glasses of their warm mulled wine which was piping hot & perfect.

Amazing day as usual! My friend and I have been trying to go once a month for a “fun wine day out” and it never disappoints. With all the times we’ve been there, the staff has been so nice to us and makes us feel so welcomed. By the time we finish up our day between food and bottles of wine, the bill is extremely reasonable and easy for us to split without breaking the bank. We look forward to coming back next month to try different wines for the Spring. :)

Our afternoon wine tasting at Auburn Road Vineyard was absolutely lovely. I was drawn to AR because of their Covid safety policies and philosophy, and I am glad we visited. The Enoteca, even when it's only 30 degrees (F) outside, is so pleasant, and the wind screen and blankets make it even cozier. Fire pits add to the ambience. Staff were friendly and attentive, wine tasting worked well, and I loved our "Buddha Basket!" If you are looking for an enjoyable outdoor experience, pandemic or not, definitely visit Auburn Road! I can't wait to go back in the spring and summer!
