This winery is well-liked by my wife and I and her parents enjoyed their first visit with us today. Good wines and great customer service from a woman who happened to be a retired school principal. Worth a visit.

With wine selections like DETENTION and HOMEWORK, how could you not like this place? Great biscuits to munch in between tastings. Cute props for pictures against the chalkboard as well as neat gift items. A definite stop!

Yes. I believe it was only about $5 for several different types of wines. You choose.
