We enjoyed the drive up to the winery/tasting room. Server was very knowledgeable about the wines being poured (we actually mistook him as the owner). As others noted, taste is subjective, and we did not care for the wines we tried, but it was worth...More

We stopped here early on a Friday morning and were the only ones in the tasting room. This was our first stop and it set a high bar for the rest of the day. The person serving us could not have been friendlier or more...More

This place was absolutely surprising. All of the wine was fabulous. We ended up walking away with a $30 Riesling and $35 Pinot Noir. It's a steep price for us but worth it. Bobbi helped us and she was very charming. She made recommendations on...More

This is a small tasting room, friendly staff and nice scenery. The guys threw the baseball around on the lawn while the girls tasted. Price was $5/6 wines. The Good Karma was really good and they donate a portion to a cause. Very informative tasting.
