I am a dedicated red wine drinker and love big dry reds. I don't find these ones absolutely dry and they have some residual sugars, although the winemaker seems to disagree with that. They are very nice wines, big fruit, a little sugar still present...More

Stopped in here after a recommendation from another Cellar Door. My wife loved their selection of sweet wines and their unique names such as Pigbrusco and Pigscato. Great friendly service and good value.

I just spoke with Steve the winemaker and they’ve had a few delays and the restaurant opens in August now. I can recommend either Muse Kitchen @ Keith Tulloch winery close by, or Botannica also close by.
