  • Beth was an amazing hostess, checking on us frequently and I hear, ;-) ;-) , is responsible for the awesome dessert sampler! Steve, a fabulous server, will tell you all about the wines, their making process & Lake Mills! Chef Jason made us a wonderful meal, even coming to our table to greet us and ensure we were enjoying our meal! Thank you all for making our rare date night an evening to remember!
  • The wine, food, and customer service were all great. I love that they use local products as well! We had the Hawaiian pizza and salad combo, and ordered a dessert sampler too. The snicker cupcakes were amazing. Lewis Station Winery is definitely a place I'll visit again!
  • Loved their red selection! Sangiovese was fantastic as was the reserve cab
  • I have been to Lewis Station Winery twice, for their cooking and wine-pairing classes. Each of these times, I have enjoyed their food and wine, which I found original and tasteful. However, yesterday, while he was cooking and teaching us delicious recipes, chef Jason Dunn ended up making a comment that ruined my evening. He went into a story that I had heard him say before, about him visiting Calais, in France, and facing a very rude waiter, who mocked American cuisine. He mentioned that he had responded to the waiter that French cuisine would not use so much sauce if local ingredients were as good as American ingredients. Chef Dunn then explained that, after the waiter had started cursing at him in French, he had responded to him that – had Americans not come to save French people during WWII – this waiter would be cursing at him in German. Fair game, I would say, although some would argue that history shows similar and earlier displays of solidarity from the French to Americans (ie, the American War of Independence). Chef Dunn then decided to say to the laughing crowd that, although he had always hoped to meet with a French person that would make him forget this unfortunate experience, he had never met a French man or woman who wasn’t a small and stinky person. More laughs occurred. Problem: I am French. Second problem: although he didn’t remember me, I had met chef Dunn before during a cooking class and mentioned to him that I was French. Incidentally, it was after I had told him this that he first recounted his bad experience in Calais, although he had then abstained from his last blanket statement. After his story, one of my (mortified) American friends decided to speak to one of the owners of the winery. The chef later came to me to tell me that he had the outmost respect for French people. I appreciated the words, but his actions said otherwise. He also said he had enjoyed studying French while in culinary school, which is besides the point. So, let me say this: I truly apologize in the name of my countrymen and women for the bad experience chef Dunn has had in Calais some 20 or 30 years ago. France, like America and any other country, has good and bad people. Some of them work in the service industry and most definitely should not. Every time I have seen or heard a French waiter or bartender be rude to a foreign customer, I am proud to say that I have spoken up. After all, regardless of where they come from, customers are the lifeblood of a restaurant or a bar. With that in mind, I have worked in sales and customer service all my life. I also happen to work in the hospitality industry. I would never take the risk of alienating a client and going into a xenophobic remark to get laughs from other customers. So, if you like tasty wine, you should go to Lewis Station Winery. If you like tasty food, you should go to Lewis Station Winery. I, however, will not be returning to Lewis Station Winery, because I believe that – especially after a recent presidential campaign that pinned people against each other – using nationalism as a sales pitch is profoundly distasteful.
  • Wonderful fresh salads and tasty pizza.
