Very good wines and the service excels. They adapted great to my personal preference and I loved all the recommendations. If you like a more sweet, desert-like wine and very unknown in US I recommend a Moscat Ottonel, my favorite.

Yes but don’t Allie inside the winery unless guide dogs. They have outside seating and will serve you there, if a weekend should do in advance call and arrange. During the week will make it work.
