We really enjoyed our tasting. Nathan was awesome. Enjoyed the wine and the vermouth. Definitely worth a stop. Who makes their own vermouth. Excellent.

One of the wineries that allows dogs inside the tasting room, which was very nice so we could taste together instead of switching off while one holds the dog outside. More upscale and smaller than surrounding wineries, and the $10 tasting fee isn't waived if...More

Loved the wine and vermouth samples. The Rose and vermouth were absolutely outstanding. We'll definitely visit this place again.

We visited about three years ago. It was not nearly as good as this visit. Do not leave without purchasing some vermouth. It is under new management. If you tried it before, this is not the same.

We went to Veritas first where they gave us a special offer to taste the wines at Flying Fox. It seems the owners are part of the same family. This winery was totally different in that it was very small with no view whatsoever and...More

While at Veritas Vineyard, we picked up a tasting offer for Flying Fox Vineyard. Never letting an opportunity pass, off to the Fox we went. The Tasting Room was small, yet comfortable. The Rep was friendly and fun. The whites were ok. The Merlot, 100%,...More

They don't have a large tasting room or outside area but the size doesn't matter. The inside is very cute and they have a nice variety of wines. They were informative and friendly when going through the tasting. Some vineyards rush you through a tasting...More

One of four stops for tastings with another couple. Small and cozy tasting room with a young man providing the tastings. Wine was good overall and their vermouth was very interesting in beautiful bottles. Nice, quiet, casual atmosphere.

This was our first visit to the Flying Fox Vineyard. The tasting room is small, on the grounds of a Bed & Breakfast, but cozy with a fireplace. In our opinion, it could accommodate a group of ten but no other patrons at the same...More
