LaCrema provided a relaxing, delicious experience in a beautiful setting at the SaraLee Vineyard Estate. The service was outstanding and the wine tasting was nicely done.

We had a very nice tasting here. The best part was that we were there by ourselves for the first 30 minutes. It was quiet and gorgeous out; the staff let us wander around a bit since we had been in the car so long. Once we were stretched and comfy, staff came out and started our tasting. It was casual, not rushed which was a great way to start the day.
Thank you!
Oh yeah, and one of the few wineries were I enjoyed ALL of the wines.

Beautiful grounds! Sad we didn’t have time to explore. We didn’t have food but I had to give stars for that category to move on to the next step of this review. We lucked out the weather- sunny 80 degrees and we were seated on the first floor which was nice and shady. For our tasting they poured 3 Whites: 1 Rosé and 2 Chardonnays, 3 Reds: 3 Pinots and a couple of delicious extras. The tasting was $30 per person but with the purchase of 2 bottles the tasting was comped! Love it! We came home with 4 bottles! Looking forward to going back and walking the vineyard! Another bonus was the staff was very welcoming and attentive. Thanks

First post-lockdown tasting experience was very average. The property is beautiful, as expected for RRV. We had two flights of 3 wines. We had no dump bucket and waited a good amount of time for the second flight, host was waiting for us to finish the first flight which some wanted to dump. No offer to revisit anything, no bonus pours. I mentioned that we were interested in trying a dessert wine but got nowhere with our host except to let us know they have a sweet Riesling. Didn't offer to pour it or give us a price. We had 6 people including one DD and one birthday girl. The host made a point of telling us the birthday girl was comped, but charged the full tasting for the DD that only had one 2 oz. pour of Rose. The wines were good, it was acceptable overall but nothing special. No food was served.

We were 15 minutes late for our tasting and gal that checked us in offered us a free glass of wine or “we could rush through your tasting.” It was clear the way she asked she did not want us to choose the tasting. Not friendly or welcoming at all, although our pourer was nice. We are wine club members but this is our second tasting experience that was totally forgetful so will be cancelling our membership.

It was absolutely lovely sitting out back and our server Javier was very helpful and charming. We got to walk the grounds (masks in tow) which I highly recommend as they have a trail that bends around what must be an event area with two train cars used as kitchen and restroom respectively. It was a warm day so the Pinot Rose was the winner for me. It was a wine you could sip it all day as perfectly refreshing in the heat. Our group of 4 highly enjoyed ourselves.

Due to the COVID-19 issues, we were unable to evaluate the "food" part of the questionnaire. La Crema provided a truly great experience. So yes, I joined the wine club because there just isn't a wine in their line-up that isn't delicious. Cheers!

Sorry to rate food "poor". This is a reservation for wine tasting. Their wines are delicious, the servers are extremely knowledgeable about the wines. And you can try wines that aren't available in stores. The Saralee property is beautiful! You can buy some snacks if you get hungry, but this is not a restaurant.
