    Beautiful vineyard, very pleasant cellar door. Gave me a complimentary cheese board to go along with the wonderful wines.

    The wines here are good and affordable. We enjoyed the wines ($10 tasting, choose any 5) and walked away with a nice bottle for $30 to enjoy on the beach. Obsidian is on the walking trail that goes through the vines of several vineyards, well worth the stop if that's your path!
