    If the great wines and interesting history aren’t enough to make you love this place, Shirley definitely will! She was so personable and funny, she definitely knew how to work the room and make a wine tour fun! The rest of the staff were equally as pleasant and welcoming. Highly recommend stopping here if you’re in the area!

     (5 / 5)

    We had gone to this winery on the recommendation of friends. The tasting room facility is beautiful and is the farm house from the 50’s, beautifully modernized. The displays are wonderful and I especially liked that there was a panel dedicated to the original owners and their family. Nice touch. The service was fantastic. While we were the only ones there when we visited we felt like we were old friends that had stopped in for a visit. The explanations of the wines we were tasting was interwoven with information regarding the locations of the vines, the vintner’s family history and the heritage of the vineyard. Highly recommend stopping here and tasting their fine wines which were quite reasonably priced as well!
