  • We stopped in for the wine tasting and tour. Very impressed by the wine! The tour was good, but short. Picked up a case of our favorite wines. We didn't try the restaurant. Definitely recommend this fruit winery.
  • Do you like wine, ice bergs, berries, and ice cream? If you do, this is the place for you! Wine made with icebergs and berry, and an option to have it in ice cream form? I spent almost an entire rainy day there! The winery is wheelchair friendly, however the indoor access from the winery to restaurant there are a few steps. You would need to access the restaurant or winery from their individual entrances.
  • July 16, 2017 Had dinner at the winery tonight. We waited 1 hour and 20 minutes for our meal. I had the chowder, which I must say was delicious. We had fish and chips. The fish was good, but it would have been better with homemade French fries instead of frozen. They brought our chowder and soups and right after brought our main course. I would only rate 2 stars because the kitchen service there sucks. I would not go back.
  • Food was good but not great. Service was very slow. Don't wait for a bill, just go up to the counter to pay. They didn't tell us that and we waited awhile. Also we wanted to do a wine tasting but although we hung out in front of the tasting bar trying to get someone's attention, the staff seemed more interested in chatting with each other than in helping us. We left disappointed, without trying the wine.
  • Good food, nice gift shop, good soft serve. I've never seen soft serve with all these different flavors. It was just fun to try it. Why doesn't everyone do this with their soft serve ice cream!?!
