We visited and had Lana show us through all of their wines. She was so friendly and knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about their wines. The wines were very great - we signed up for their wine club! Highly recommended.

A wonderful and warm winery, very passionate and special staff showed us a lovely time with private tour and 5 course lunch. Food and wines are outstanding. View from the restaurant overlooking the winery is stunning. This is a must see.

Such a beautiful winery. The grounds are beautiful with rolling hills and such a perfect outlook. Staff were friendly and fun. Their Chardonnay Cuvée is lovely. Definitely worth a try
