  • A small group of friends went to the vineyard and did a wine tasting, and we REALLY enjoyed it! We were in the barn and worked with Hoss, who was amazing! He was knowledgeable about the wine, accommodating to our taste in music, and patient with our quirky antics. After the tasting, we visited the vineyard, and it was beautiful! The setting is so peaceful, the wine is delicious (we each bought at least 2 bottles), and the people were great! Highly recommend visiting the vineyard!
  • Wonderful time celebrating our wedding anniversary and trying 4 new wines at the winery! Loved it!! 💋😘💃🏼
  • Dreu made the experience for us! We'd go back again just to visit him! Beautiful location and great wine!
  • My husband and I visited the vineyard for a group tour and wine tasting. The tasting was only an extra $2.50 and we each got to try 6 different wines. I'm no wine connoisseur, but they were pretty tasty in my opinion. The other good thing about the vineyard was its location. It was gorgeous and had a beautiful view of the valleys below. I rated the vineyard with 3 out of 5 stars because the tour was basically a complete waste of time (the guide didn't know any answers to questions people asked), started late (by about 20 minutes), and provided no interesting information. I'm sure I'm not the only one who felt a little tricked by the tour guide, too. Just before the tour she asked us as a group if we wanted wine slushies. It definitely sounded like they were provided as a courtesy, until she charged us all an extra $5 for them. They tasted like they had barely any wine and were probably only about 6 ounces of slushy, which isn't a lot when you consider that most of it was ice. Afterward, we tried to buy a few bottles of wine and had to wait about 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us at the counter. They were busy, but to me that's pretty unacceptable. All in all, I'm wish we hadn't gone. There are better things to do.
  • I was out at the wineyard earier this summer and had a wonderful peach slush. I was looking forward to having another in a few days but I have been told that the slush machine does not make slush anymore! Please post it if this statement is true or not. I love the scenery when I can have a slush to keep me cool.
