  • Having a pizza lunch midday. Nice eating area with tasting room with barrels on the right side as you enter. There is a decent amount of dining room. We heard the pizza was wood fired and good; it was...  more »

  • As a place for wine tasting, it's pretty good. But it's really turned into a bit more of a restaurant, but it's kind of loud sometimes. Good place to meet up with people, but if you're looking for a nice place for a date there's plenty places in Caz that are a bit more suitable. Most of the wines are good, beers are hit and miss, and the ciders are usually very good (but there's a slight variance in aroma between the batches).
  • There wine is way too expensive now that they raised their prices. Its decent wine but not good enough to be in the $20 range. I used to buy cases at a time but now...$24 for a bottle of decent Cabernet franc wow, $19 for Chardonnay! I have been twice recently but i just cannot pull the trigger on a case of wine anymore, bring back the old prices and I will. The food is good and a really nice atmosphere though.
  • Great pizza. Great views. Some good wine.
  • My husband and I have come here twice. The first time, after waiting 30 minutes we were seen at the bar and we ordered their wine slushies. They were very good slushies, but not worth the wait. This time, we waited to be seated - waitresses ignored us - but a bartender gave us menus and told us we'd be served outside. We waited outside for 20 minutes with the waitress not coming over a single time. We know she saw us because she said hello as we sat down (there were only 4 tables being served). Terrible service. Not worth it at all. Find somewhere better.
  • I love this place! Exquisite music, wine, food, ambiance, and a wonderful staff. From my first visit, I was warmly welcomed and treated like family. I recommend the adventure of one of their flights of wine- the bar staff will help you choose the right wines for your pallet and the price is incredibly reasonable. The menu has something for everyone- a brilliant combination of rich comfort foods and eclectic, healthy dishes. Even though I'm on the other side of the country at the moment, I was able to call in and pick up the check for some dear friends who were dining there tonight- a service that few places would be kind enough to facilitate on a busy Saturday night! Owera nails it in every way. Definitely worth the beautiful country drive. :)
