My husband and I enjoyed a wine tasting. Great staff, know their wines. They even had a selection of non alcoholic wine red and white wine. Thry no longer have the alcohol free peach wine. more »
The best winery in the area. Wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable staff. They host many free and fun activities. I love this place.
Very nice staff, wasn't particularly enthusiastic about their wines-- but everybody has their own taste, so I'd recommend stopping by.
