“No Tasting Refunds Even with Wine Purchase”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

This winery may get some play because of anyone who may just love Terry Hoage from his NFL?Superbowl days but, what he knew about football, he evidently never learned about business. We visited his winery last Saturday on a tip from a local tour guide. He called ahead to make arrangements and set up the experience. We actually liked a few of his wines but, if you're used to having your tasting fee waived IF you make a wine purchase, FORGET THAT HERE!! We had been promised the ability to buy wine at wine club prices if we bought wine but that did not happen. OK, we could understand why that did not happen, but we certainly expected them to waive the tasting fee when we made a purchase. NO WAY!!! In fact, we've since learned that they have adopted this policy for all customers. This is decidedly not a policy that supports the social spirit of discovering new wines and, if they persist, will most certainly make them a pariah among wineries in the region.
