Folktale Winery And Vineyard, Carmel Valley Reviews - Write a Review
Such a great little winery. Some of the vest service I’ve ever received. It was very busy because of the Napa fires and our waiter went above and beyond. The tasting series is a great way to try all their wines that they have on offer. Loved the giant board games and outdoor setting as well. Perfect day out to the city.
Food Allergies Beware! We attended the Chef Duel #3 on November 6th. We have known about this event for some time - but this was the first time our schedules were open to allow us to attend. We knew food was available for purchase - but were surprised at the prices ($10 for a hot dog & $12 for a glass of wine). We watched the Chef demo (Justin Robarge vs Dyon Foster) and then tasted their offerings. Sadly, there was no posting of food ingredients & I have a severe allergy to tree nuts. As it turns out, Chef Foster's food contained hazelnuts which were not disclosed. I tried his food first & once realized there was an ingredient used that I shouldn't eat - and verified with the Chef. As a result of this, I had to take a rescue oral medicine & leave the event immediately to be able to get home in case I needed injectable epinephrine. I have written to the winery to suggest a change to their venue - such as posting ingredients in writing either in signage or in handouts - but to date, have had no reply. If I could give this event a negative star, I would surely do so.
Received a warm greeting by the hostess along with complimentary sparkling wine but it was all downhill from there. Got our menus and northing else. Wish we had brought our flare gun to attract the attention of the wait staff. We waited 25 minutes for someone to take our order and then gave up and left. We will never be back.
This place is beatiful and huge. You are able to do the tasting seated and the waitress gave the extra mile for you to feel comfortable. Wines are good, so is the food. Must taste the 2015 Estate Chardonnay if you want to try a unique Chardonnay.
Let's talk about the customer service. Our waiter, man with a brown beard (sorry I forgot his name) was AWESOME! The hostesses were incredibly rude. 45 minute wait because they were "full to capacity".... if capacity means several empty tables. We heard them yell at other waiters for letting a group sit at one of the EMPTY tables -- unprofessional. Our waiter could tell I was disappointed with the hostesses so he tried very hard to make our experience more positive. He was the shining star in a sub-par experience. Maybe go on a weekday when they aren't as busy and disorganized? Also, they treat it like a restaurant. Meaning, you have to wait for a table. It's not a traditional wine tasting so be prepared to wait. I wish they would switch it because I'm sure they'd get much more business. You'd think after 2 years of being open they'd have it down by now...
