Great winery to visit when in Bear River. Everything we tried was great and it was hard to narrow down what we should bring home. Cute location and friendly people.

Great little winery. It may be off the main road but definitely worth finding. Awesome wines and great people running it. Highly recommended.

New owners have taken over this vineyard but in the meantime, the older bottled wines in 1/2 L bottles are available for sale at high prices. Small terroir produces small amounts of wine. New owners have interesting plans to expand their vineyard varietals. I enjoyed...More

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 !
