A snowy cold and windy day was warmed by great wine and cider tastings. For us, the selections are secondary to the warm reception and service of Rachel. A very nice visit. Drink Blaufrankish!

My friends and I visited over Labor Day Weekend. We really enjoyed the tastings, and the fact that you could mix and match wine and cider. Since the weather was sub-par, it was crowded and it did take some time for us to be acknowledged....More
