  • Beautiful vineyard with great wine and an incredible location. Beautiful creekside seating along with a patio often filled with wine enthusiasts. Excellent place to bring lunch, relax, and enjoy a bite with a great bottle of vino.
  • Our first time left a lasting impression, and the weather was even overcast. So many idyllic areas to relax and enjoy your wine, and the selection itself is very well balanced. They even started selling ciders as part of a joint partnership with ASUs fermentation group. Make sure to say hello to the friendly border collie roaming the property.
  • Sally is the family matriarch and quite a lovely lady both in spirit and good looks! The hospitality here is second to none, the ambiance, the setting and all the buildings combine to make this a place in the high country that you shouldn't miss!
  • Beautiful scenery and great wine. Lots of outdoor seating and a very pretty creek. This is a great place to bring your dog and relax.
  • This used to be a local jewel, but now the casual atmosphere is bringing more and more people through each weekend. Despite this, it still has one of the best setups for afternoon chilling on gorgeous days. Come with friends and indulge on $20 bottles of awesome local wine. Outside food and friendly dogs are allowed.
