We had a tour of the facilities and the girl giving the presentation was awful and to make matters worse, she was also included in the wine tasting part. The wine itself was average, not as flavorable as I thought any of them might be....More

We did not sample the wine but we did some serious shopping in their gift store. They have a wide selection of clothing and books at reasonable rates. Not too much kinky stuff!

We just did the wine tasting, not the tour, but it was great. A nice opportunity to try different local fruit wines. We brought home a few bottles of our favorites. A great activity that doesn’t take too long.
