Seeking shelter from a miserable day (rain and cold) we found ourselves in front of a lovely big fireplace with delicious wine and wonderful new friends! The wine tasting was fun but hanging out and enjoying new friends and wine was even better!! Thank you!

A desperate place - we travelled from Williamstown - we stayed for 5 minutes. Supposedly the best cider donuts in the county - I wouldn't eat ( or drink) anything made there - not worth the trip

Cannot go to this winery without coming home with an arm full of very good wine and apple cider donuts. To sit by the fireplace with a nice bottle of wine is very relaxing. Well worth the trip
