An ATV ride through the vineyard shows off the landscape. Then, enjoy a private tasting with the excellent Pence staff. Burgundian wine lovers (Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay) this is your spot. Not overly oaked, some fruit without any loss of structure in the pinots. The...More

We did not realize that you need an appointment for a tasting, but the manager was kind enough to let us come in since his next appointment was later. We are so happy that we stopped. The wines are in a Bordeaux style and were...More

I was totally impressed with the property, staff and the wines. You have to make an appointment to visit so call first. They have several areas for tasting but I preferred the upper area near the duck pond.
