  • I loved the place. It's a cozy wine where he is attended by the owner that presents you the wine with a lot of knowledge and attention. It is possible to taste a good wine with wonderful views. We bought a few bottles to take.

  • Good wine, great people! Friendly and knowledgeable.
  • I enjoyed the ports and dessert wines but the sparkling was exceptional.
  • Delicious desert wines.
  • 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.
  • Horrible service... Felt like I was on an assembly line for our tastings. Brittany made the experience as she would pour the wine with an annoyed look on her face and walk away immediately without giving any information about the wine our the winery.... Avoid at all cost
