I had a wonderful visit here with Kelly several years ago. This time, Marcy poured for us and she is not too friendly. We decided to limit our tasting to one after discussing unrelated plans and she gave us major attitude. We were with members...More

Look at all the other one star reviews; there's a reason. It's the incredibly rude owner/server. She insulted one of our group's members. We almost had to beg for our final round of tastes when she realized we weren't going to buy any wine. There's...More

Worst treatment, very unprofessional and very racist person I have experienced. Look at the picture of how the owner treats their customers. Do not buy here there are better wine places which will treat better.
