5 Mile Bridge Wines dba VERDOT, LP is in fact a cheap wine sold for a high price. The Wine is really owned by Robert JS Fowler and Ron W. Hertel two builders who got caught building cheap homes in San Luis Obispo, CA they are part of the Hertel Group.

The State has a ongoing investigation into there wine business be warned to have the wine tested for toxic substances first. Hertel employee and con man Tom Habbick is running the winery since there building business has failed. Again a poor quality wine connected to a even poorer builder all are associated with RW Hertel & Sons, test the wine if you buy it. BAD WINE 5 MILE Bridge wines.

    I agree these are lousy wines and contain poor chemiclas that will harm you.

    If you buy any have it tested for Lead before you taste it.
    These are the same crooks who own RW Hertel & Sons who built the Defective homes in calif.

    These postings have been written by a convicted con artist by the name of Scott Barnes. He has been trying to shake me and my company down for the past three years. He is a sociopath and has succeeded in committing insurance fraud against his own homeowners association insurance company and has spent years slandering me and my employees.

    Websites, such as these refuse to take any responsibility for the content posted by their users and so creeps like Barnes continue to have an outlet for their vitriol, lies and slander that can't be challenged or removed. I wouldn't put any stock whatsoever in what is posted on these kinds of websites. There is simply no oversight and complaints about their content however justified go ignored by the website's administrators.

    Shame on you Complaint's Board.

    This is an interesting posting, I did NOT post it but will respond, RW Hertel & Sons with 5 Mile Bridge is nothing but con men, do a ChoiceTrust check or check with the BBB or CSLB.

    The Courts have many records on Fraud and Insurance scams by Hertel and his associates. They try to blame others for there Fraud, the official records speak for them selves. Hertel has massive mechanics Liens, fails to pay for his own cleaning staff to vendors and subs. A Fraud TRIAL is set for them this years let the case be heard in the public forum it will be interesting.

    RW Hertel & Sons is a con and fraud check the public records. It was Hertel who sued his own buyers why ? because he tried to cover up Toxic Mold and cheap defective homes now he facing a Fraud and Unfair Business trial the truth is coming. KITCO Holdings, LLC just had to loan over $ 1.5 Million to help scam more people...

    I agree the 5 Mild Bridge wines are low class and over rated, I am having them checked with State ABC for valid license to sell in the wine club word is it's another Fowler Hertel scam.

    This Fowler is the same one associated with the now defunct Diable Grande project who uses Tina Fowler, Tim Fowler, Walter Fowler, Ron Fowler, Sandra Fowler David Fowler the list is long and all are involved in the financial con with Vincent Rover and Ron Hertel with Robert Fowler. Check the Stanislaus records they have massive liens they do not pay the bills much like down in San Luis Obispo records too. Any one know the home address of Robert Fowler i want to send him some flowers:)(:):):):):

    The VERDOT, LLC is part of the Hertel Group, LLC owners are in financial default on many loans and now are attempting to conceal assets in 5 Mile Bridge Wines.

    My Attorney is on to there new scams so thanks for the info, the Wine is a Low Class Cheap wine. Better to buy Spinada for a few cents per gallon. It is bad wine.

    TO EVERYONE reading this blog:

    I am just writing to let it be known that these postings are being written by ONE man. He has been trying to slander and wreck this company for years! He writes under many many names, (any that pop into his balding little head) He SPEWS LIE after LIE! He has found every possible site he can to post hurtful untruthful statements about this company and its owners.

    Unfortunatley these sites and their operators feel no obligation to post truthful or accurate information. This site has become a feeding ground for a GREEDY< IMMORAL<MANIPULATIVE excuse of a human being whom is out to fulfill a personal vendetta. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

    **Anyone who has owned a small business or provides a service to others is at risk to be slandered and harassed in this manner. Web sites such as these have an obligation to the public to allow only factual content. Once the claims have been disproven the sites administrators should be required or morally responsible to remove the postings.

    I wonder why Ron Hertel if he is so good and honest does he fail to pay his bills ? why does he have so many judgments and liens for failing to pay ? yet he buys expensive cars, plane and boats ?

    I saw one of his many expensive cars yet he can not pay his bills, thus Hertel is a well known documented con man fraud. So many sworn statements against him ? The truth is Ron hertel little scams are coming to an end. So i suggest you bury your cash in a can since i am told the IRS and those who you cheated are coming to collect.

    you are on the money. Hertel wanted Mold to be removed from his leaking defective homes in Rancho Obispo, yet he fails to pay his bills a quick of the county clerks office and we see we are not alone is getting scammed by Hertel many other subs and vendors have still yet to be paid for their work. Hertel stop your cover ups and pay your bills. Your a lying con man. You cheap ###.. you will NOT get away with fraud from us.

    According to Hertel manager Scott Bales who supervised the most recent ongoing TOXIC MOLD removal of homes located in the Defective Hertel project known as Rancho Obispo. Well according to Mr. Bales Service Master who did the mold removal several of the cheap homes still is owed over $7, 000.00 so Hertel pay up you cheat.

    Think about it. If Hertel and Fowler were so honest, there wouldn't be such a large following of their 'death watch' (not literally). I know someone who bought one of their homes, she was ill for two years and didn't know why. Finally, they discovered the mold. She had to move out to save her health. I hopeHertel and fowler end up in prison and get what they deserve. Allegations against Hertel and Fowler are most likely true. I live in San Luis Obispo county and I know more people who know their names negatively than I do in a positive light. Thank god for the internet or people like this would most likely get away with it. Keep sharing the news about these con-freaks. The more the general public knows, the better off all of us are!

    Those of you who have been scammed, cheated, lied too or lost investments or those who Hertel and Fowler still owe money to you can file a claim with Cuesta Title on Tank Farm Rd. in SLO with Martha S. she is handling the escrow in which Verdot Group, LP etc... dba 5 Mile Bridge Wines in which they are on paper moving the assets to there friend and partner Vance Rose, either way a Lawsuit is going to be filed along with allegation of fraudulent transfer to conceal assets etc. but you may want to make a claim now before the con and scam close.

    The winery is being given to there friend Vance Rose to hide the assets from creditors seizures.

    BAD BUILDER, This RW Hertel & Sons was found Guilty of fraud and theft in Stanislaus Superior case CV-383845 I am not surprised they are nothing but cheating and liars. Now they are trying to get 5 Mile Bridge out of there name so the IRS doesn't seize it or the many who have judgments against them after all the CSLB web site says the State is pulling there license for failure to pay court ordered fines and judgments.

    RW HERTEL IS A FRAUD !
