The wines were barely ok. The service was poor. However their “Christmas” drink (seasonal sale item I think) was great. That one redeeming quality did not make up for their shortcomings.

Skin Fermented Whites or Orange wines are so fun to experience. We started with a Chardonnay and expanded to the Gewurztraminer style as well. I hope you enjoy it with your Thanksgiving meal.

Our deck does have a way of sucking you in and making you relax. I'm happy that you were able to enjoy our tasting room from a different perspective. Hopefully you will have time for a tasting on your next visit!

This winery came highly recommended by multiple sources. It was crowded. The staff person, at first, did not care what we wanted to sample. He assumed we wanted to drink. I asked for information about this winery and product available for tasting. Asking for water...More
