My wife and I had a Groupon for barrel tasting and a bottle of wine. Even though the owner had failed to put us on the calendar and they were busy with both the crush and getting ready for a golf tournament they were sponsoring,...More
These guys know how to have fun. Visited with my special buddy who knows her wine... and oh do they have tasty blends. Found the Victoria and Triumphante Grand Reserves to be particularly smooth and velvety. As they say..don’t judge a book, or rather, in...More

Went here for a CAB and CRAB feed and had a great time. Had never been here before and all of the employees/staff were very nice and accommodating! Tasted some wines first and then went in to the dinner. The food was fantastic and plenty...More
By far the best winery in apple hill area I have tried. This place sits behind two wineries from the street. The small shed tasting room shouldn't deter one from trying.
First notice the full room. It's like a party. Greeted promptly from the friendly...More
