Went on a stormy day but was so worth it to find this little piece of magic. Enjoyed tasting the wines which was free. Well informed staff, helpful and welcoming. What a place in summer. Worth ending up like the photo

Lovely winery to visit - gorgeous views, delicious wine, and a relaxing vibe. Affordable bottles of wine and the tastings are complimentary. Best to have a car if you plan on visiting, wind down the windows and enjoy the drive!

We went there on a winters day and you wouldn't have known it was blowing a gale outside - the heaters were on, the gazebo side were down and we were toasty. Sure we couldn't picnic on a rug but we could picnic at a...More
