Very nice winery, good choices and nice little shop. We stop at the Bistro next door and had a wonderful lunch with a great view! I would go back.

Preferred the wines and service during several previous visits. Seems that the wine quality has gone down a bit. Our favorite is the Chardonnay select

This winery has a lovely setting. The wine tasting was interesting. It is also a souvenir shop. Food is available and the menu looked good. As you drive in you can see the grapes growing on the vines.
