The name of the vineyard is aptly named, because the wines are wickedly delicious. Incredible views of the lake, very good wines and knowledgeable servers. Definitely a must stop if you are in the area.

The wine was great and the staff was very attentive and took the time to talk about each wine with us. The grounds were gorgeous and the back patio had an amazing view.
