  • Good whites but their reds leave something to be desired. The service on the day we went (a Sunday) was good but the woman working was all business, not particularly welcoming. It was our third winery of the day so we were a bit silly, but that should probably be expected at a winery.
  • Great employees! Very social and enjoyable to talk to. White wines were refreshing and rich!
  • So incredibly unsafe, uninviting & unprofessional that they would allow a staff described fat cat as "grumpy" to lounge on the tasting bar. Being bitten by this creature while staff minimally acknowledged it let alone apologized takes away from any reviews I could give on wine. Horrible experience
  • Nice wine tasting experience. Great Sauvignon Blanc. Nice tasting room staff. Excellent picnic area on the patio. Wines aren't expensive.
  • Wine Tasting very informative
