Enjoyable family type winery that makes you feel at home, wines are Italian varietals, staff is helpful. Best wines complement the delicious food served at deli. Views are spectacular from the veranda and comfortable Adirondack chairs add to the experience.

The wine tasting at Cougar Vineyard & Winery is such fun! The hostess gave tons of information including how to open a bottle of wine. Beautiful setting, too.

Great wine, great food, and great views!! If you like red wine, try the Full Monte. If you like white wine, try the Estate Arneis. But the best of all: the Pink Cougar! Go and you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful views with a Board Head Deli on site. The pizza is delicious and the wines are great. Italian style varietals and 100% estate grown. Definitely need to visit and take a seat on the wooden Adirondack chairs!
