First time at this vineyard. The owners were pleasant and very knowledgeable. It is a very small operation. The barn where the tastings are held is nice, and there is an area on the other side of the small vineyard area with tables for picnics...More

The rating here will vary based on how social you are. The owners are lovely and we had a wonderful chat with them on a slower day. It was quite refreshing after how impersonal a lot of vineyards are more or less out of necessity....More

Thank you for your very nice feedback. Yes the barn can get warm. It is very old and has lots of cubes. The design is called an "English Barn" which means that the center bay is designed as the threshing floor. So that by opening...More

We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon. Our visit was great! The owners were serving and could not have been more lovely! We especially enjoyed the Walker white table wine. Definitely worth the trip.

This winery is perhaps the smallest on the wine trail and is our most favorite. The owner will educate one on the art of blending grapes and has the products that demonstrate his skills. Not the easiest place to find but well worth the effort.
