  • A nice venue with a good selection of local wines, Not Napa Valley, but not bad. Good prices, good staff. 
  • Winery is a small winery that makes some very different wines, I did not like them, but wine is Very much a matter of individual taste. My wife enjoyed their port and one othe and bought a bottle of e...  read more »
  • Wine was ok, staff was very busy and impersonal, except for the owner Rick who bragged about his money. We did not get satisfaction for the mistake of his staff that did not package up our glasses and add them to my purchases. He was very rude and condescending. I would recommend avoiding his establishment due to the lack of concern for customer satisfaction. Here was his response to me. "You should have taken your glasses. This is the owner. Send me a $10 check and I will ship you two brand spanking new glasses. Sorry, I'm not in the shipping business. That is the only solution. Sometimes you cannot afford certain customers. 29998 happy tasters and you." I would suggest wandering across the street to a different and more friendly establishment.
  • The owner Ricks is (let's put it nicely) a jerk! He flirts with his customers, brags about his money, and does not really care about satisfying the customer. As an owner, he should be doing everything he can to keep people coming back to enjoy the wine; but instead he chases customers away by being unfriendly. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • My wife approves that's all that matters to me. Been here multiple times. We came back for the garlic olive oil and the wine. Owner was very nice and chatty.
  • The wine is decent, particularly the Muskie and Panfish varieties. Had a series of bizarre rambling interactions with owner Rick Halajcsik about the multitude of strange Christmas holiday decorations, and other subjects. Wine is OK, but strange atmosphere.
  • Wine was eh, mostly tried to sell us stuff.
