When you are going to drive three hours to keep a Groupon from expiring, you are hoping for a good time! Well Baroda Founders didn't disappoint. Even though the facility doesn't feel very "winery" as it isn't at the vineyard and is more of a bar, our server was so delightful. We were able to have five tastes and then... More

Who am I kidding - its a bar. Looks and feels like you are in a bar. It's a bar. The wine was ok. I guess if I had a groupon I would go back. We did buy the blueberry mustard, it was awesome.

My husband & I are not huge wine drinkers so I may not be a great person to comment on the wine. We used a Groupon coupon which was $16 total for both. Nothing fancy about this place but the minute we walked in Devino the server that day made us feel welcome. He was quite knowledgeable & informative and... More

Nothing special. We didn't feel like we even real wanted to do a tasting here. Felt like a 'Pop Up' winery. Didn't stay. Was very open and plenty of room for several people. Had an odd smell to it.

I was on a wine tour with a group of friends (9 people in all). I was surprised by my very positive experience at founders. We each got to choose 5 wines and also received 2 free dessert wine tastes. Some of the wines were better than others but my husband and I purchased a bottle of the "married in... More

Wines I couldn't get a taste of any , no flavor to the fruit wines , it looked more like a bar than a winery, pricey on the wine tasting , we went back 3 times to finally have someone wait on us and after being there it could have been the one we could have missed

Best wine tasting experience EVER! Don't let the location deter you. The wines were unique. Chris was extremely knowledgeable. She explained each wine and even told us about the lake effect climate and its impact on the grapes. Loved "First Kiss"; which Chris suggested it be served with cheesecake. Thanks, Chris! You were amazing! We'll be back.

My parents and I went to the location in historic St Joseph near the lighthouse. The young gentleman, I cannot remember his name, was extremely welcoming and super informative. My parents do not drink, however my mother absolutely loved their white wines we tried. He was great for conversation, and the two other ladies doing a tasting ended up in... More

This was our 2nd visit, and it will be our last! The first time was a couple years ago, the place was dirty and wine unremarkable. Bought a Groupon, not realizing it was that place! None of the wines stood out, I can't address pricing of the wines because I didn't bother to look, there were no wines I would... More
