I tend to be suspicious of wineries in "off" areas, but Barrister was a delightful surprise. The Savignon Blanc was excellent as was the red blend. I was fully expecting to just pay the $5 tasting fee, instead I bought a few bottles.

Barrister Winery is excellent. Rustic, yet beautiful venue and top notch wine. One of our favorites is the Cab Franc, but they are all good. We have hosted a couple of parties there and are also in their wine club.More

There are no small rooms per se but I believe they could accommodate small groups if given enough notice.
