Visited on a beautiful sunny day which only helped the experience...great hosts at the cellar door...good wine knowledge...explanations about the varied terroir and beautiful wines. Also had a wonderful platter of French and Marlborough cheeses...the chapel is special and we loved our visit.

The setting is beautiful with the tasting room in the little chapel. It is a bit further out of town of the main drag of wineries. The vintner doing our tasting was from France and seemed a bit pretentious about their wines and not inviting...More

Perhaps the least ostentatious, but the most welcoming vineyard of our tour, was Clos-Henri. They moved a small chapel here for there tasting room which creates an intimate and old-town setting. Even though the winery was begun in 2000, it feels like it has been...More
