very nice location with great views. the lady leading the tour was very enthusiastic and articulate when it came to the wine making process and all the inter workings of the winery. All those in the wine bar were very friendly and could answer all the questions you asked. The 3 wines that we sampled were below average compared to other wineries we have visited, and not a good representation of their entire stock. We did request a wine with more body and flavor and were given a taste of a cab which was definitely better, but there are richer flavors on the market. The distillery has their bourbon, vodka, and rum all of which exhibited a flavorful smoothness and richness. I am not a bourbon drinker, but enjoyed Jimmys, and found the vodka to exhibit a silky texture which will make it a welcome addition to your mixed cocktails. The young lady, who said she was part of the family, and was running the bar ,was not overly friendly and seemed more bothered when asked if we could try a sample, which we were paying for. Might want to reassign her to another position. Decide not to purchase anything due to lackluster attitude. Other than that, it is worth visiting and enoying the day.

Decided to drive to this place on a whim. Super glad we did. Beautiful surroundings and lovely building!

We like sweeter wines, but really enjoyed our flights. Next time we will check out the distillery.

We are just down the road and one of my very favorite things to do on a saturday afternoon is sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the breeze off the vinyard.

Our visit - a treat from the friends we were visiting in Athens - was a pleasure from beginning to end! We stayed at the B&B which was outstanding in every regard and the winery & distillery were an experience not to be missed if you are visiting this area.
Sharon, the winery tasting room manager, was an absolute delight! Friendly and knowledgable, she even remembered the wines I enjoyed most when I went back the next day to make purchases before leaving. The patio was a relaxing place to enjoy a glass of wine, or rum from the distillery (which was excellent also).
Living in British Columbia, I have tasted many wines and Kiepersol’s wines were delicious!
The tour led by Papa T was interesting and entertaining, opening with a spirit tasting and ending with a wine tasting was a very nice touch.
I can’t say enough about the wonderful staff and the beautiful location.
Thank you for a memorable visit - I hope we’ll be back!

Excellent service and beautiful location. The wines we chose were very good but a bit on the expensive side.
