The wine was great, but we only had food here as part of a community fundraiser. It is great to see them support the local community though, so we took part while we were there.
Love the outdoor seating , wine and owners. Unfortunately, we had a new server and could not offer much information on the wine and area.
Went wine tasting for the first time for my birthday. If all the places we went, Hovey had the best wine. They just seemed to be understaffed when we were there. It took a really long time to get through the tastings and our server was polite, but you could tell she was definitely swamped.
The outdoor grounds are awesome with plenty of shade from the heat and separated from others. Our server Sonya was just so so, not super interactive. Poured and gave brief description.
Service was horrible.
Loved the wine tasting here! They have a great assortment of white, rose and reds. The staff are very personable and know a LOT about wine. I would highly recommend it!
Natasha was great! Very personable and accommodating!
Such great wine, knowledgeable staff that are fun and friendly.
So nice! Beautiful day, quite, enjoyed all the wines in our tasting. Tasting fee was cheap, and waived with bottle purchase.
So nice sitting outside on the lawn, very friendly staff and great wine!
Natasha was a fabulous server. The seating in the garden was delightful. The Pinot was fantastic!!
As always, had a fabulous time at Hovey! Natasha treated us right! They put up a little camping type type so all 6 of us could be seated together for wine tasting. Their wines are so good!
No food at the winery, but plenty of places to get food if you want to picnic.
Lovely! It was so nice to sit outside.
It was nice to be able to schedule wine tasting outside during Covid but the experience was not the same. The grounds were very nice to sit in on a beautiful day. There was not much dialogue with the staff about the wines and they took a long time to come back for pours. The wine was ok but the wine tasting fee of $15 is high and not worth it for their wines.
Love Hovey Winery. Our go to place when we come up to our cabin on the weekends. ☺️🍷👍🏻
Relaxing way to spend a socially distanced evening
They have one of the most inviting outdoor areas for wine tasting. They also welcome food from the pourhouse next door. They were very busy for a Friday but the well spaced tables and 2 workers made for an excellent tasting experience. The wine is also well priced and the Zinfandel and Cinsaut were excellent as always.
Beautiful outdoor setup and pleasant customer service.
Great tasting venue. Outside in beautiful grounds and nice seating. Dogs allowed to join and sit with for tastings. Laura and Craig were so nice and helpful. Wines are good and very reasonable.
Craig our host was knowledgeable and fun. The wines we tasted were excellent across the board. Our favorite is the Barbera, but the Chardonnay is also excellent. The garden tasting felt safe and lovely. We will return.
Hovey is my favorite Murphy's spot. I love the big lawn with all the tables set out under the trees. Great service & wonderful wines!
We hadn't been to Hovey in a few years, and decided to go again after our son went and enjoyed it. Sonya was our server, and was awesome. We loved out experience, and the wine so much we joined the club! Looking forward to coming back again soon.
It was a nice relaxing place to sit and enjoy the quiet. The wine was delicious and the food was Mary's Taco Truck.
Natasha is a wonderful ambassador for Hovey Winery; our wine tasting experience with her was delightful. She was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, and fun. Precautions were taken as per COVID-19 requirements and our outside seating was comfortable and safe. We've been long-time fans of Hovey Wine and, as always, were impressed with the quality and value of every varietal we tasted.
Hovey has an amazing outdoor area that is shaded so it's not too hot. Seating was comfortable and our wine pourer was knowledgeable and very helpful. We enjoyed the experience and will be back.
Craig and Sally were awesome hosts. Loved the wine and the area we were able to taste in which was a large yard with tables with umbrellas. Enjoyed our time there.
My husband and I enjoyed our safe Covid style tasting and the staff was so helpful and kind.
Very relaxing and pleasant atmosphere along with exceptional service and food
I made a reservation at this winery after trying a bottle of their Barbera. The wines did not disappoint! The outdoor seating on the lawn was relaxing and shady with a low key vibe. The staff was friendly, professional and implemented all of the COVID 19 precautions. Our server, Sally, was great and shared good information about the wines. I’m looking forward to visiting again!
We ate a the Murphy’s Hotel. As usual, it was excellent.
Great atmosphere, amazing service and good wine!! Go if your up in Murphy’s!!
Beautiful outdoor seating and atmosphere. Service was prompt and length of time in between tastings was just perfect. I would recommend this to anyone. They even provided an extra complimentary tasting from the menu for the group for the birthday girl’s choice. Fun!
Sally you are a gem!!! My first time at Taco Tuesday was definitely a success - would go back! Fun to see Alyx working too :)
It was pretty warm outside. Took awhile to get each tasting.
Love going to Hovey--it's one of my favorite spots in the Sierra. Currently with Covid-19, they have ample outdoor seating, all appropriately distanced and the team there is fantastic. I highly recommend checking them out--even better, become a wine club member. You won't regret it.
We love Hovey’s collaboration with local restaurant and food trucks on Tuesday nights. Their adaptation to the new COVID regulations allow for clear directions and ease throughout this period of time. Tasting room associates are masked and take care of all needs. Our associate supplied us with a cup of ice on this particular hot evening, just in case the wine wasn’t to the temperature of our liking. Our other associate made the trip inside twice for us to get different bags to package our wine as gifts. We appreciate their attention to detail, joyful demeanor, and community based values with a commitment to public health.
A wonderful Father's Day treat! Friendly, caring, connected.
I go up to Murphy’s a few time a year and I alway make it a point to stop by Hovey! Great atmosphere and great service!
Fantastic as always!!!!
