Extremely good smooth wines. You may choose 5 wines on the list for tasting which was very nice. A nice tasting experience!

Stopped because another winery was closed. So glad we did. Rich was lovely and the wines unexpectedly nice. Great variety - especially if you like sweet wines.

We have visited wineries with wine we like better but never received the royal treatment by a family member who remember the old days told us great stories and took great care of us.
