The wine is excellent but the samples were very stingy they really need to work on that. Smallest samples on the peninsula! I almost didn’t buy wine for this very reason but it was too good to not buy itMore

We recently changed to larger wine glasses for tasting and at the time we noticed that even though our pours are the same as before, they look smaller in the new glasses. However, we will closely monitor our tastings over the next few weeks to...More

Went to this place on a wine tour with friends. This place is so good and the people that work there are super nice. If you go there you must try the cherry desert drink - amazing!!

The staff was nice and the views were also lovely but they didn't have a lot of wines I loved. I like a lot of sweet wines and did enjoy "Seas the Day." I think it's definitely worth a stop though.

A must for the wine connoisseur. Beautiful setting on the river at the Narrows. Sitting and relaxing by the river with a great glass of wine can't be beat. Carol made our visit very enjoyable. Stopped by twice. Already looking forward to next year.
