The building, grounds and the tasting room were really need to go through. Lots of neat architectural features. The tasting selections were pretty good, but portions were really skimpy. They said they conduct tours of the old hops drying kiln, but they need 24 hours...More

Located in a 1905 building used to process the hops grown in the area back at the turn of the century, this place is pleasing to the eye and toothsome to the palate. A nice range of wines are offered and they are well done.
