decided to trust the Yelpers and check it out.
When we pulled in to the property, it was hard not to notice the numerous chickens running around on the grounds. As we parked, we were greeted by a rather large barking dog, who ended up being a sweetheart.
We didn’t see anyone around and weren’t even sure where the tasting took place, but we started to walk
Donald’s stories. One of my favorites (and he had quite a few) was his “oh shit” wine… he meant to be making a GSM when he noticed the Zinfandel barrel was empty. Oh shit! A Zin blend it is!

What a hidden gem and unusual experience with Walking Feather.

As we were driving towards Law Estate Wines for our 2:30 appointment, we noticed several “Vegas” style signs along the highway. For any of you who have ever driven to Vegas, you may know what I’m referring to. The “last chance” Mad Greek Café; the “last chance” Alien Jerky; “last chance” to gamble and get a $5 prime rib, signs all along the highway. These signs were similar in concept but were wine related and it easily caught our attention. And we're not the only ones apparently- ask a local if they heard of the place and they'll respond, "Is that the one with all the signs?!"
