Our tasting host was sweet and we really enjoyed our time there including learning about the unique structure. The dry riesling and dry gewurtstraminer were so good, we sent home a case.

I see this brand of wine from time to time in restaurants and stores, but had never tried their wines until now. We mostly drink red wine, but this winery is known for their whites. The server was very friendly and we did enjoy their...More
