the only problem was the numerous children running around our table and screaming at least at the 100 decibel level. With the Covid-19 situation, and children not exhibiting symptoms, they could very well be spreading without knowing.

For the wine tasting I think you should get served in a wine glass and outside by someone. Not given to you in plastic medicine cups snd served on tray to take outside. That is the only thing I would change.

We hadn’t dined out at the vista
We were pleasantly surprised by the ease and speed of ordering and prep of our food. Reservation was easy to make. The distancing allowed for a lovely atmosphere but an overall quiet and personal experience. The food was lovely and tasty and plentiful. Overall nice experience

It was awesome! We stayed using Harvest Host for two nights in our RV. Beautiful place. We did wine tasting the second day. Great wines! We also had wood fired pizza, cheese and combo. They were both really good!

It was a gorgeous day with not a lot of people. We sat on the veranda where a wonderful breeze would come by often. Me and my mother shared a wine tasting and then got a mimosa each. The wine connoisseur was warm and sweet and very knowledgeable and helpful. The food we excellent. We had the seasonal pizza: fig, arugula, goat cheese, balsamic, and prosciutto. The only small issue was the people who were doing the food completely forgot about us so it was a good thing we weren't in a hurry.

Good pizza and great white wine. Red wine should have been kept at cellar temp not Central Valley outside temperature. Also staff needs to enforce mask mandate and no groups ordering at bar, Merced county is one of the worst counties in the US for Covid at this time, let’s not mess around. Overall good experience nice music alternative and wonderful to be dining outside.

The venue is beautiful and the seating area had plenty of shade. The pizza they make there was excellent. My only complaint was that though the pizzas were really good, they were expensive for the size. They’re the size of a personal pizza and they were $16 each. So, pricey but the taste was definitely there. Overall it was good experience and will most likely go back another time.

No cheese plates available on the day I visited; the only food options were nuts and pretzels . I'll return for pizza night in the coming weeks.

Great experience overall. However, we were put at a table which was about 10-15 feet from blaring speakers. Beautiful ambiance overtaken by blaring music. I’m sure it was mostly fine for the tables further away where it would have been more like background music.
