Informative. Excellent service.Very good wines. Try their entry level Tortoise Hill Red, Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot. Very good, easy drinking smooth red wine. Great for sipping with a good book, in front of a roaring fire. Lovely views.A very happy experience!

The wine tasting was great with a nice variety of wines. We only did the tasting, not the pairing so I can't speak to the food. The view from the tasting room is fantastic. A nice stop if you enjoy wine.

The views and food were out of this world - worth the trip for the views alone. Wine was tasty - ask for a table outside and thank me later
