Paul is the draw here. He will ask you how much time you have to spend and will adjust his talk accordingly. We were there around 90 minutes. When we first called him from his front door he was busy, ... read more »
It may not be super easy to get in here but if you are lucky enough to meet Paul, you will walk away with so much more than great wine. We actually felt honored to be in his presence. With so much kno... read more »
Absolutely incredible experience. Paul is 91 years old and runs things his way. Why shouldn't he?! It appears that has rubbed some folks the wrong way, but honestly just go in with an open mind. He's very passionate and tells great stories - enjoy it!
Unique does't even start to describe this place and the wine available. Be prepared you are also given an education by the owner.
Buying wine here is not just shopping, it's an experience. I feel sorry for anyone that doesn't understand that or read up on this place before going. The 90 year old chemist that runs this fine establishment does so with love and pride, his wines are his masterpieces and finest creations. Like any artist he does not willy-nilly release them but take you through the process of their creation from conception of the idea to fruition of the final wine. I absolutely adore this place, it's wine, it's stories and it's proprietor. My only great concern is that he does not seem to have an apprentice and so the beautiful exquisitely unique recipes may be lost on his retirement.
Paul was very nice and thorough. Had a Great time!
I have never in my life been to a winery with such a very RUDE man. I came a long way to visit this winery to buy my son a bottle of wine. The guy that owned it told me I could not buy a bottle of wine unless I did a tasting. He went on with a ridiculous explanation. I explained that I only wanted to buy my son a bottle of wine and he would NOT sell me one. He was extremely rude. Whoever heard of such an idiot that would not sell a bottle of his wine just because I would not taste it when it was not even for me. I guess the guy is just old and has no business sense, but I would not recommend this winery to anyone.
