– Norman A, October 2015

I have to say that was one of the best tasting experiences I’ve ever had. Not sure why, since I read so many positive reviews of the wine beforehand, but I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did. …The way you do your tasting is so relaxed too, that it felt more like visiting someone’s home than doing a wine tasting.
– Ryan F, February 2014

Thanks for such an enjoyable time tasting the Auteur wines last Wednesday. You were very generous with your time and it made a big difference to taste the wines over a couple of hours so we could really appreciate how the wines evolve. …Kenneth is making excellent wines and the impression is greatly enhanced by such an enjoyable and pleasant tasting experience.
– Ross R, January 2015

We had a wonderful time. …Auteur is by far the best!

Thank you for making us feel so welcome in your “Auteur” home. The connection you have with Kenneth and his wine is obvious. I have November 2nd on my calendar for next year, just kidding. We hope to see you again soon.
