The winery is located on a quiet country road, with some beautiful rolling hills out back. The staff is very friendly, and they’re open until 8 during the summer months.

The winery offered a variety of wines with only a $5 tasting fee. The girl at the counter was very friendly. The tasting room was very bright and clean. We enjoyed our visit.
