  • The wine at this winery is very typical local western PA wine. The red wines in particular are very sweet so not our kind of wine. But the winery itself was very nice and the distillery across the str...  more »
  • The wines were from locally grown grapes and very good, though not exceptional. The tasting was free and we ended up buying a bottle.  more »
  • With only a couple of wineries within an hour's radius, this is a nice change of pace. My husband and I took a wine tour followed by a wine tasting and it was very lovely. The tour guide was extremely...  more »

  • Everyone was so pleasant and friendly. They introduced all the different wines to us. There was no 5 limit for they wanted to make sure we chose the wines we most liked with a second taste of our favorites. It was a very easy enjoyable experience. We will definitely come back. Thanks Christian W. Klay Winery.
  • It doesn't get any better than this And you even get to pick the grapes.
  • I am so glad that I read the review regarding the bigotry that the management displays against homosexuals. I cannot in good conscience support a business that discriminates against a group whether it be race, gender, religion, or sex. If you support or a homosexual yourself, i would encourage you not to support this owner's business practices!
  • Cute local winery. Quality of wines is a mixed bag. The woman running the tasting room was friendly but not overly knowledgable about wine in general. Worth checking out but temper your expectations so you'll enjoy it for what it is, a cute stop in the mountains.
  • I cannot believe the service I received during my wedding planning as well as the day of the wedding ceremony. The site is beautiful, with well groomed vines and mountain views, but do not plan on getting any help from anyone at the winery, except their groundkeeper Ray. I made an initial appointment to visit the winery and check out the site to host my wedding there. I emailed with the contact from the web site and set up a time for a Saturday morning as I lived in Virginia and would be traveling to PA for the visit. No one showed up. No one even showed up to open the winery on time.. Eventually Ray showed up and was able to drive us out to the site. We did love the site and didn’t have many other choices for wineries in Pennsylvania, and other vendors mentioned there were weddings at Christian Klay all the time, so we figured it must just have been an off day. So we coordinated with the owner over the phone and booked our wedding. As our date approached, about a month before, we thought we should reach out and go over all the details. We set up another meeting on a Saturday morning and were very excited to figure out everything for the wedding. When the day came, the lady we were supposed to meet was not there. The lady working behind the counter was very rude and just said she doesn’t work Saturdays. I could not believe this was happening again and was very upset. Luckily the owner lives next door and was able to come over and show us the site again and talk us through some details. She said to draft up an email myself with all these details and email them to lady that did not show up since she coordinates all this. I did and received no response in return to my email. Eventually I called a week before and she said she got the email and everything was fine. No apology or explanation was ever given for missing our meeting. On the day of the ceremony, no one was there to assist in coordination, except for Ray who drove the hay-wagon and was very friendly and helpful the entire time. After the ceremony my guests went to the winery to do a tasting and were turned away. It is a public winery, open to everyone and did not close for an hour, but they were given no explanation just told they could not do a tasting. Every time we went in for a tasting ourselves we were treated very rudely and it seemed we were an inconvenience for the lady behind the counter. Overall it was a very terrible experience for me and my guests and I would not recommend anyone to even visit the winery let alone get married there. I think Ray did an exceptional job and the site is gorgeous but the service is so bad that it cannot make up for the scenery.
