I must say that the wines were really good, the sommelier at this farm pretty much went through the motions but the rest was wonderful. Very comfortable and I believe their marketing strategy is great. Would recommend a visit.

One of the best presented cellar doors I've had the pleasure of enjoying a tasting at. Staff were wonderfully attentive, relaxed but professional. A quality and good selection available for tasting. Add the charming setting and outlook, makes it difficult to leave. Plenty of parking.

Loved everything about this place! They had some of the best white selections of all the places we visited - specifically the barrique and viognier. The staff were knowledgeable and clearly passionate about their craft. My only regret is that we couldn't stay here longer!
