I have visited the vineyard before, and have had a better experience. When my partner and I arrived we were sat at the tank patio. The weather was 70 degrees outside however the sun was beaming on the patio and there were no umbrellas over the tables not even in the taproot restaurant. This was an issue for everyone around us and the staff was made aware of the concern. The cheese board platter was very small and then what I received before and the cheese melted due to the heat as well as the wine warming. The vineyard needs to invest in umbrellas as they had in the past and give people what they are paying for.

Hi Monee, thank you for returning for another visit! We're sorry for the lack of shade - we are currently waiting for a special awning installment to fix this. We hope you return to be able to enjoy a more comfortable experience!

Had some tastings on the Tank Patio. Overall, great experience, beautiful winery views and quick service.
Wines and beers that we tried were good, very drinkable, but nothing to buy to-go.
I kind of wish the music was quieter as it was blasting some 90's songs so loud, it got in a way of enjoying the view and the nature.
Also, it was extremely hot outside and overall experience would've been a lot better in they had some umbrella's for the tables. We were sitting in direct sunlight and it was uncomfortable.

Fun place to taste wines / beer with friends or on a date. The ambience is great and you get to sit among the barrels, tanks and actual vineyard. The actual food and wine was okay, but still made for a fun experience.

A wonderful evening to spend at the winery. We were a little disappointed that a wedding kept us from being able to explore the vineyard. There was also an hour and half time limit on our table.

For this being our first outing since the start of the pandemic it was a positive one. Masks were worn by servers as well as patrons until you were seated and eating. There was a sufficient amount of space between tables and we never felt uncomfortable.

We love the wines and wish we had more time to enjoy a glass after our initial tasting and meal. They also ran out of the one dessert we were dying to try! Will have to plan another trip to Newport!

First time on the tank patio, since it was all we could get for a reservation. We were NOT disappointed! Great music, great vibe and outstanding service! View of the vines was beautiful, and the grill menu offered enough choices to keep our group happy. Prices are reasonable, and everyone enjoyed the entire experience... highly recommend!

We got there on time for our noon reservation, just as the restaurant was opening up, few tables were taken. Oddly they are operating outdoors, and have absolutely no umbrellas for shade for the customers, their umbrellas were all being used in the staff areas. Several unoccupied tables did have tree shade. The computer randomly placed us at one of the many tables with no shade though, and the first three women we went through just couldn’t go against the random assignment by the computer, it was beyond them. The third woman trying to help told us they would get me sunscreen to put on so I could sit in the sun. The fourth person we got to was finally the general manager, and we were able to sit at one of the unoccupied tables in the shade. By the time we left, there were still unoccupied tables in the shade. I will not be returning.

NV did a really nice job spacing out tables & accommodating diners. My party of 3 made reservations for Brix Bites, and we enjoyed our time there but the items available are very limited and the portions were really small. Literally, 3 tortilla chips come with the pork & beef chili. Regardless, the winery/brewery is reallly cool & the wine is good (didn't try any beer). Great White is a really nice white wine. I would go back but be more cautious about menu items the next time.

Over the top covid-19 precautions. Server wouldn't even approached our table until we had masks on. We were seated in the back corner where the wine barrels were is very sterile and dark. You weren't even allowed to go outside unless you were escorted. The final straw was the fact that you actually couldn't drink a bottle of wine at a winery! You could only purchase one to take home. Do not recommend!

We understand that this makes for a different experience. Our seating details are clarified on our website, as many guests request to be near the barrels.

Service was horrible. The waitress not only took forever on getting back to our table but constantly took more tables over seeing if we needed anything or asking how we liked our wine choices. Not to mention we gave her 3 debit cards to split evenly and she charged my card the entire bill along with my 2 friends the amount we were all supposed to get charged. Customer service skills are clearly not required to work there

Our waitress must have been having a bad day because she was not very friendly. We felt rushed the entire time and she did not make us feel welcome during our reservation where we were celebrating my significant other's birthday. Besides that the food was great, solid wines and amazing atmosphere. I might have to try it again on another day.

We had a reservation at 5:30pm but we were not seated until around 6. I had to ask twice about our reservation. The drinks were good, the food was alright. We ordered a cheese board which came with three types of cheeses, nuts, some fruits and very little crackers. We asked for utensils since we ordered tacos and the waitress just brought 3 sets for a party of 6, she mentioned that they were running low and will bring them as soon as possible but she never did. We were seated inside which didn’t have much of a nice view, I wish they had more outdoor seating for a bigger party.

Loved trying this place out! We had excellent service and the food selection was just right for us (a smaller menu but variety enough that anyone can find something to eat!) The ONLY downside is we had to sit outside and it was pretty chilly. You can only have paper/plastic outside which is totally fine for us, but may bother other people coming to try the wine. Would absolutely recommend!

This was extra seating in the back brewery ares of the winery. Same access as the main dining reservations, just a smaller menu. Went for a tasting and food was not required. Really enjoyed it since we could not get a normal reservation. Wines were great!

What a beautiful setting! We had 2 reservations for a party of 10, one for 4 people and one for 6 people. Due to Covid there were restrictions on six people to a table which was totally understandable. Upon arrival one of our people checked in for both reservations. When we got to the tables we thought were ours the hostess said we had only checked in for one party. She would not let us sit at two adjacent tables and insisted that this was just not possible and she had quite an attitude about it. She told me to go back to the hostess stand and check in, which I did. I will add that it was not a busy time and there were multiple empty tables. They would still not put us next to each other. My husband asked to speak to a manager. And the manager also said no without a really good reason. So we spent our afternoon separated. Right before we left they seated two people at the adjacent table we wanted. There was no good reason that we could not sit together. On our way out we went outside to take pictures, which was permitted. However, another employee was outside telling people to hurry, not to loiter etc. again understandable due to Covid, but he was so rude about it. We barely got our pictures. Maybe they should just not let people outside then. At that point we all decided we were not stopping in the gift shop and giving this place any more of our money. What could have been a pleasant afternoon even with Covid restrictions was ruined by the very rude staff.

My second time in the past month visiting. First experience was at Taproot Brewing where we came for a beer flight. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the beer. The menu we thought seemed very limited and expensive. We just settled on splitting an appetizer which wasn’t filling enough when drinking. My second time we got seated at Brix and was hoping for a different menu. I walked the trail there so I wasn’t drinking and was disappointed that the menu was the same. I ordered a steak sandwich on special for $20 which was mostly all fat terrible quality steak for the price. They won’t substitute sides so I added potato wedges that were drenched in oil and too much seasoning.
For the price you are paying for a meal here food quality is not good enough.
Service was very good both times tho. I’d only go to drink if I return again. Also, note if you plan to sit outside the bees will be joining you.
