I had the most enjoyable birthday experience here. The owner is so kind and passionate about wine. The servers were extremely nice. And the grounds, you will be amazed. I actually want to live there. Lol. Please go and enjoy yourself. You won't regret it.

Started our day with a stop here. The buildings and grounds were very nice. We tried their red sangria and it was delicious. Several umbrella and chairs/tables scattered around the grounds. Will be back.

We have been here several times both when it was crowded and when there were very few patrons. The food and presentation was great and certainly one of the best on the trail.

I don’t find it normal at all for a winery to serve food on paper plates and water in disposable plastic cups. So trashy and super bad for the environment. The french bread on my sandwich was super dry, making it nearly unpalatable.
