You must take the Winery tour to truly appreciate this gem. Oldest, continuous winery in the US - including prohibition. Excellent selection of wines and hard ciders. Lovely historical buildings and wine cellars dating back to 1830!

We had a very knowledgeable tour guide, though the tour was a bit long. Nice wine tasting at the end allowed for sampling of a lot of different wines.

Wonderful place, and the wines are fabulous! My absolute favorite is the Holiday Wine, which is sold during the Thanksgiving / Christmas holidays. Either cold or warm, it's just a fantastic wine!!!!

We stayed at the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast in nearby Salisbury Mills and enjoyed it very much.

I'm a little late to the game, but if you are interested in a bed and breakfast, I LOVE the Dominion House B&B. It's about a 10 minute drive away. I go every year!
