Great wine tasting and visiting with Jeff Cohn as well as a couple with a darling dog. The conversations were fun, and the wine was amazing. Wish we could find some in TX.

We recently visited for our third time and enjoyed our tasting as much as we did the first two times. Josh is a great server--always attentive and friendly.
