Great location, beautiful grounds, happy staff! And.... The wine was excellent too. Seven of us ladies had a wonderful time touring the peninsula. We all came home with some great wines! Thank you! Looking forward to coming back to try the restaurant!

Wine was great but unfortunately we missed the bistro being open so we must return to get some of the amazing sounding food! The building is beautiful with wine to match.

This attraction was one of 3 on a 60th birthday tour gift. The people and their products were lovely and the tasting was a really enjoyable experience. Beautiful views and really nice staff. Well worth a look in.
