  • Went for wine tasting, service and wine were GREAT!! You get to keep your tasting glass, which isn't true with most places. The hard cherry cider was so good we bought a bottle!!
  • Our group of 17 had a wonderful tour on Saturday, we enjoyed the wine tasting and a huge shout out to Bill and the winery for the hospitality/service we received and letting us hang out while our tour bus was stuck.
  • The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I was not much of a wine drinker before, but the staffs suggestions and food pairings definitely got me rethinking my stance. Highly recommended (especially the brandy).
  • My husband and I visited this winery/bed and breakfast to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We were not disappointed! The location was peaceful with beautiful views of the lake and vineyards on a high hill. We enjoyed the tastings and free glass of wine on the beautiful patio. The next morning we had a lovely breakfast prepared by a chef for the small group of bed and breakfast guests. After breakfast we went on a tour of the vineyard and wine making facility. It was so interesting to have the entire process of growing grapes for various wines explained. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable and the room decor was beautiful. We look forward to returning in the future!
  • Another great winery to stop at. A little more "uppity" feeling but I still felt comfortable here. Laura was extremely knowledgeable and lead us to wonderful choices. We decided on the 3 tasters on the patio with the fantastic view. Prices are comparable and you get $3 off a bottle of wine when you do a taster.
