  • Let me start by saying this is a nice vineyard with pretty tasty wines. The problem I have with the place is the setup and the attitude of the staff. When we arrived we were told it would be about a 20 minute wait to do a wine tasting. Ok, no problem. The problem is they told us to go stand in the gift shop for 20 minutes. I asked if we could go and have a glass of wine and they said we could but that we couldn't do a tasting If we went and had a glass of wine. They couldn't be bothered to walk over and let us know when a tasting slot became open. I flagged down a manager to let him know about my experience but rather than listening to my feedback he seemed determined to tell me why I was wrong for not wanting to stand in the gift shop as I was told. Also would it kill you to sell some cheese or other snacks with the wine or do you not like making extra money?
  • Lots of wines to choose from! They offer tours and tastings and a farmer's market on Saturdays. Only took 1 star off because of the price of their wines, a little steep in my opinion. Average cost of most bottles of wine is $20+
  • Nice place as the sun was shining and tastings were going on outside. Lawn games to play and very busy. We took the tour and tasting and it was ok. If you do the tour and tasting make sure you are not rushed for time as the tour isnt long but only 2 girls to pay for and serve the tasting so it takes a while.
  • Host at the door was extremely rude. Online said walk ins are welcome but once we came with a group he said no but no explination. Then we tried to make the group smaller and go at separate times which again he said no. Then we asked again. I finally said is there just no availability and he said yes this is the fourth time and laughed at me. Completely rude and ruined the experience. Really poor customer service.
  • When I first visited this vineyard about 8 years ago I thought it fell a distant second to Sakonnet Vineyards (now Caolyn's Sakonnet Vineyards). Now, however, I believe this is the best vineyard in lil Rhody! The wine selection had expanded- as well as their premisis/tasting room- and it really is good. I always look forward to a trip down this was for another tasting and a few bottles of the local stuff.
