Enjoyed a mug of hot mulled wine, a beautiful view and our own snacks on a very cold day. Although Gouveia is usually very busy, we found a Monday early afternoon just perfect for a relaxing visit.

Visited this winery and thoroughly enjoyed their wines. Also enjoyed the experience as the lady who guided us through the tasting knew her stuff. She was friendly and simply made the tasting fun.

I have been here many times and highly recommend it to all. The variety of wines is great. Love the Cab Franc and Cayuga. My favorite time to visit I spring and fall. You can get a table outside and just enjoy the scenery.
