Located in Sunol, Elliston Vineyard features a beautiful English garden. We photographed this location in 2017 when it was closed for renovation. The tasting fee is normally $5 and snacks are available for sale. This location has reopened but we have not returned to photograph the tasting bar. The grounds are beautiful and we’ll be back and we’ll be back summer of 2018.
