“Decent wine, rude staff”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

The tasting room is nice, but that's about it. The first time we went we were ignored, and finally treated rudely when were able to order. We gave it another chance a few weeks later. Upon pulling into the lot, the "bouncer" told us they were closing in an hour and maybe we shouldn't stay. We didn't and won't be back.The other wineries are much more friendly and we've never had any issues with any of them. Adios Macari.

“Mediocre wines, nice tasting room”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 via mobile

Nothing overly positively or negatively to say about this vineyard. It had a nice tasting room. The pourers were very knowledgable and friendly. The wine was very mediocre but was priced right.

“Good wines, bit of a mob scene on a Saturday”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We had been visiting wineries on Friday and it was so nice and quiet that it was a shock to see the number of large groups here. However, we then found out that they also have a tasting room downtown Mattituck that probably would have been more appropriate for our trip. Our tasting server Larry, was very friendly and helpful even though he was clearly extremely busy, he made our visit very enjoyable. Next time we will go to the smaller room or go on a weekday. Would definitely go here with a group.

“Tuscan sun yes...frigid embrace”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

When approaching wine counter stay away from tuscan blonde she pours a bitter glass. No smile, warmth, depth. Sour smile and chilly disposition. Two stars, one for the beauty of the vines and the kiss of the sun from the deck. Sad visit.
