One of our favorite wineries from past trips to region. We tasted and we purchased as usual. We arrived at the right time as we were completing our purchase, a large busload of individuals entered to sample the wines. The staff must have been overwhelmed.

Enjoyed this smaller winery as many other vineyards also recommended to visit this as it too was on the Wine & Cheese Event. Great variety of reds and whites. Got a few bottles and will be visiting again.

First I want to say the owner's father was( out of over 13 wineries visited in two days time) the most memorable. He was knowledgable, friendly, and he offered us a free tasting if we purchased a bottle. Not many do that. The bar is...More
