  • Good wine, great people! Friendly and knowledgeable.
  • I enjoyed the ports and dessert wines but the sparkling was exceptional.
  • I am a big dessert wine fan. After having so many Pinots and Chards, I was looking for something a little different and I found it at Kalyra. The tasting room is super cute and has some very unique gifts. I went with the reserve dessert and port tasting for $12. The Semillon and the Gewürztraminer Sticky Wicket were my favorite.
  • Delicious desert wines.
