We stopped in and almost immediately regretted it. It was like a frat party in there. I felt bad for the girls trying to get to everyone. We got one pour and then the chanting began. We just set our glasses down and left.

We tasted and joined the wine club because they had great reds to go with the expected whites. Plus they have a nice kitchen and had a great sandwich. One of the bigger tasting rooms with a nice retail area.

Tasting fee of $15 is not waived with purchase which WAS the case with the 10 other wineries we visited. A souvenir glass (which we really didn't need) was included in the fee. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and we purchased a bottle for $22. With...More
