Had a really enjoyable visit - tasted 10 wines for $6, and ended up buying the Port (must try!), the Viognet, and the Concord Grape. Lots of unique wines to try - some dry wines, but mostly on the sweeter side and a lot of...More

A beautiful setting to taste any of their wines (40 available during our visit). Tasting prices are reasonable, $6 per flight of 10. The wines are fair to good with interesting attempts to blend fruit with their wines varietals. One of the original properties to...More

The tasting area could use some updating. There are only 2 bars for tasting so, you may have to wait for spots to open up. I was already familiar with Horton wines but, I had never been to the vineyard. The outside is very pretty...More

This was our third winery stop of the day, and it proved interesting in comparison. The atmosphere was very actual-winery-production-like, which served as an entertaining backdrop to the rather unusual assortment of tasting wines.
