We tasted several of this winery's offerings at a food/wine paring--quite good. I like their formula of "old" (vs. fruit-based) wines, but mixing traditional and local grapes. The wines are not only interesting, but actually ones I'd want to drink. (And the port was especially...More

The owners of White cross are a delight to talk with as they ply you with a multitude of samples. They have reds and whites. You can drink your wine on their patio and relax. The Chateau Blanc is really really good! Go try it.
