Another nice stop on the wine trail. Great people on both sides of the counter. I really liked their sparkling wines the best. Worth getting a Flass instead of a taste.

The tasting room is situated at the top of a hill with beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable about the area and local wines. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful site which can be for events. Tasting was nice, good choices. Uniquely flavored ciders were a real treat. We settled on a couple of bottles to take home.

With the number of wineries in the area you would think they would at least provide a more competitive tasting. The 5 pours amounted to less that one glass. It was not worth the money.

We made this a stop on our vacation after coming across a Groupon offer. The view was beautiful and the wine was great.
