Perfect thing to do especially when it’s raining. The old cellar tour was great. The staff was very friendly. Meeting and chatting with the owner was special. Great wine. Looking forward to enjoying our purchases at home. Recommend

This was a great winery to tour and helpful and friendly staff for the wine tasting portion. The wines were great and we ordered a half-case to ship home. Recommended.

Tough steps down from the top, but the history, the people and THE WINE makes this a special effort that is worth not taking short cuts!
