We enjoyed the Viognier and the Pinot Noir. The view is wonderful. We talked for quite some time with the winery owner sitting on the banks of the lake.

It takes a bit of deduction to find the drive down to the winery. Yes, the view is nice, but everyone along the lake has stunning views. The wines were only OK. Interestingly, the winemaker is the coldest one we've ever run into. Don't know...More
