  • I visited this winery with high hopes, but it honestly wasn't that great. I bought a few bottles of wine, I'm using one of the bottles as a home decoration piece.  more »
  • Stopped on a whim. Wines were okay but not many dry wines. Tastings were reasonable, 6 for $3. Bought a bottle of Norton. Might stop again.  more »
  • Great place to buy a bottle of local wine and sit on back patio to relax and visit. The tasting room allows you to chose your bottle with friendly staff to make suggestions. Prices are reasonable and ...  more »

  • I absolutely loved this place! The staff was very welcoming and friendly, which made me love the place even more. They made excellent conversation while explaining to me and my girlfriend about the various wines they have. Wine selection is limited (whites, reds, dessert wines, fruit wines), but I liked the majority of the samples I tried. Six samples for $3 is an excellent deal that you can't pass up (you basically end up getting more than a full glass of wine by the end due to generous sample sizes). I bought a few bottles of wine to take back home. They also have wine slushies which I personally did not try, but heard was great from the other customers in there. I definitely recommend stopping by here after getting a hike in at one of the local State parks. I will be going back to grab more wine on my next trip down to the area!
  • Great place. Good wines. Not a big selection. All made at their own winery.
  • Great place to taste wine. Tammy who served us was great . Loved her.
  • After hiking all morning this is a great place to go and cool off. Good wines and cheese and dog friendly out door seating!
  • Love this place, cute and small. But nice, they have a wine tasting and slushies to try. Yes I said wine slushies. Peach and Pina colada, which you can also try. Outside patio and dog friendly, also kid friendly, they let kids come in and out, and hang out. Also this Saturday had live entertainment. Which was also awesome.
