We bought a Groupon for this winery and it was well worth it! It included lunch and the tasting. When we arrived we were greeted by a young lady. She asked us to have a seat while she finished the tastings that she started. When it was our turn she informed us that they young man with her was training.... More

The wine is great! We bought several different flavors. The staff was reluctant to allow us to sample multiple bottles of wine. They asked what type of wine we liked, and then only offered wines along that type. Wine tasting allows you to try something you wouldn't normally try on your own. Make sure you insist to try something outside... More

We were pleasantly surprised how easy it was to get there, right off 65. The food was tasty, Italian style. They also offer a variety of salads, freshly made. Several others took advantage of the offered tour of the vat room. We tasted a few of their signature wines & bought 2 bottles. I'd recommend this bistro for a nice... More

We had a Groupon which entitled us to the wine tasting and $20 toward a meal. We found the winery very quickly just off of I-65 near the Shelby County Airport and stopped in for lunch at the Bistro. A young woman greeted us quickly and we let her know that we wanted to have the wine tasting before eating... More

I had the pleasure of hosting my son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner at Vizzini Farms Winery and what a wonderful evening it was!! It was a pleasure working with owner Tom Vizzini to create a wonderful menu and memorable evening. Working from hundreds of miles away, Tom was easy to work with and extremely helpful! The food was excellent (lasagna... More

During our Wine Trail outing we stopped at this winery. Walked in to a building and the staff was very nice. That is about all I can say that is positive. The food we ordered was awful. I ordered the salad sampler (chicken salad, pimento cheese & potato salad) & hubs ordered chicken pesto pizza. We ate enough after 4-5... More

There was a screened porch area where appetizers were served; they were gone by the time we arrived at 15 minutes past the time on the invitation and not replenished. There were 3 meal choices, and the timing of service was waaay off; those served option one were... More

This is not a major vineyard with caves, fields and fields of grapes; but it is a little slice of Italy in central Alabama. The appetizer are good and several of there wines are really tasty. They are smart to label with college mascots which makes for nice tailgate conversation. Many of the items inside are reminiscent of Tuscany and... More

We went and used an expired groupon. I wouldn't let them expire, seems to be kind of an ordeal to get the paid value on just liquor because of the AL liquor laws. It wasn't a big deal to us to use it towards food though. Just discussing what you can and can't use the expired value towards kinda killed... More
