Stop and tasted a couple of wines with a lovely Sommelier named Jacqui. Knowledgeable and very engaging. The wines tasted great and are reasonably priced. Really interesting tasting room. Stop and have a taste if you are in the area !

What a great spot to escape, completely quiet and in touch with nature! If you are looking for a place to get away from the everyday this is it. We plan to return next year but for a longer stay.

The owner "Chris" was just closing up, and he reopened for us. Very education experience. Great History. Wanted to stay longer. Got the Riesling and another red wine. Don't miss seeing this place.

I think the best thing about this little vineyard is the stories that Chris tells about the "terroir" and history. He tells such a good story that you could almost forget about the wine itself, or even convince yourself that the wine is good. Really...More

Quaint old world atmosphere and some excellent wines. Once you taste some of their wines I'm sure there is a wine there is something there for everyone. Set up in on old remodeled barn.
