We recently stopped at Rivino after getting a complimentary tasting pass from Vichy Springs Resort. They have a lovely outdoor seating area where we went for the tasting. The view of the rolling hills and vineyards was quite stunning. They had a nice misting system for the outside seating area, which was really great for the heat. Suzanne (wife of the winemaker) was our host. She's knowledgeable about the wine and the area and she hung out with us for about an hour as we tasted with some other guests. She mentioned that they have Friday night happy hours there, which seemed like it would have been fun to do.
While we enjoyed the wine, we were a bit bummed at how expensive it was. I don't think there was a bottle of red under $28. We did buy a bottle of the Cab Franc, which was very unique and had a smoky flavor to it, it was great. But we would have bought more if the price point was a bit lower.
Still, we enjoyed everything else about the place, bought a glass of wine to enjoy after our tasting and would certainly go back.
