We love this place and visit every time we come to the island. The setting is perfect, right downtown (but not the super busy part) and view of the lake. The Dollar house is beautiful and you can even take a tour and learn the history. Their is plenty of outside seating, perfect to sit in the sun and enjoy... More

My review of the winery is mostly based on the experience itself, not the actual wine or cheese offerings. It's a really fun place to enjoy some beverages, kill some time and watch some people. You'll probably make a few friends here as well... everyone seems to be having a good time!! The wine is not my favorite... I do... More

It's ok. The wine is decent but nothing to write home about. It's out of town enough to make for a nice golf cart ride and get a couple of samples. The staff is hit and miss on if they care about you or not.

Great tasting wine (red, white, sweet, dry). Lovely old Victorian house with a beautiful setting to enjoy while relaxing with a glass or two of wine. There are different outside locations, including a gazebo where you can enjoy your wine. And real wine glasses, not plastic Dixie cups.

Beautiful location to enjoy a glass of wine! They offer cheese plates that pair nicely with their wine selections!

To sit on the porch of this Victorian mansion with a glass of wine and overlook the harbor of Put in Bay is the best way to spend a summer day! My husband and I are not big wine drinkers and try to stay away from "Touristy" areas, but living in this area and never having time to enjoy our... More

Loved this winery and house tour!! Took a friend to the Island who was visiting from the West Coast, drove by in our golf cart and did a U turn to go back and check it out. The historical tour and tastings throughout the house are charming and educational and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Island history. If... More

I adored this place! The old house and the wonderful views from the patio were fabulous. Such a laid back type of place. Stopped in for a chocolate covered strawberry and had a few glasses of wine and relaxed. Even did some shopping, as they have a variety of cute things for sale. I will return for sure!!

This winery is right downtown and faces the marina. Tastings are available and they had lots of staff on hand. They make quite a few wines, and we found their dryer ones quite nice. They also have a small store area where one can buy snacks for going with wine, glasses, carafes etc. This winery is the more commercialized one... More
