  • The winery is cozy and welcoming inside, and with a large and well maintained outside area, also good for parties. The wines are few and aged with a very defined and intense character.
  • Venue was great. Fantastic live music. Open, outdoor space to sit and share a bottle. No membership required. Can't speak for all of the wines. Did not try them all. Enjoyed the Blush on a sunny November day. Kid friendly as well.
  • Outstanding small winery. Best Port! Friendly folks in inviting surroundings. Organically grown grapes, too.
  • The winery is cute and small, mostly lots of outdoor space. The wine itself is nothing special. Everyone in our party was not impressed. I have been here twice so I have no intentions to revisit. There are many other wineries in the area so I would say to skip this one.
  • Incredible 2016 Sauvignon Blanc! If you like Reds to the point of only keeping a White on hand for guests, buy a few of these! Beautiful balance, rich flavors, fine for Appetizers AND will follow through to, say, a mild Chicken entre. NOT one of those "sipping" wines.
