It was a beautiful day to stop in for wine tasting and sit on the deck to enjoy a bottle. This was a pleasant spontaneous way to spend a couple hours.

We stopped on a Sunday afternoon and felt fortunate that there was live music on the deck, which had a wonderful view. What a great way to spend the afternoon, good friends sipping wine and listening to music.

We were in town for a convention and found this wonderful place to relax in the evening. The staff was fantastic and the wine was wonderful and very reasonably priced. Can't wait for another opportunity to visit.
