Second floor patio overlooking Oakville vineyards. The Oracle is a must-try wine.
Following my own advice about where to observe the autumn color, I brought my mom to taste wine on the upstairs deck at Miner Family Winery. The afternoon temperature was quite agreeable for a mid-November afternoon, so we tasted outdoors on the patio. The view from the Silverado Trail overlooking the eastern Oakville vineyards of Rudd Estate and others was nearly magical with the sunshine shimmering off the golden hued vines below. The winery sits a few feet up the hillside, and this extra elevation broadens the view.

Based on this experience, I would rate the winery as a 6 and the wines offered as a 7. This is consistent with my previous visit.
