The grounds and facility is fantastic. Staff provide friendly customer service. An excellent wine tasting program in place. The winery provides a Wine Club which joined for a year. I opted to terminate due to personal dissatisfaction, which may not apply to all other members.

Excellent winey on the Wine Spectator list. Worth the visit. We happened to be the last two into the winey and as a result we were treated to a personal tasting. Happy, happy and much appreciated. Go for the ice wine and the Saperavi
