I would really like to hate or love this place but neither is possible because of the experience made. I booked it because of some positive reviews and due to a lack of choice in the area.
Good things first: Really nice rural location at an ancient farmhouse. Very friendly welcome and a tasting of the produced wines. Excellent dinner at reasonable cost.
Not so good: The owners do the B&B on the side which results in missing keys and waiting time for almost every question/issue you have and leaves an unproffessional impression. The bed sheets seemed to be fresh but still had lots of hair (animal hair?) on it and didn't seem to as fresh as I would have like them to be. At 2am people started moving in and this went on for 1,5hrs. LUckily for us we planned a very early departure anyway and just took the opportunity to leave even earlier. But paying a room for 4 hours of sleep?
It took me a while to make my mind up but it appears to me that the B&B is just a side business to get more buyers in for their wine. This is a brilliant idea but the execution leaves room for improvement.
Am I too fussy? Probably, that's why I will recommend this place as I like the idea but if you're also a bit fussy go somewhere else.
