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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.
