Folktales Winery was absolutely brilliant. We went earlier in the day before deciding to come back later for dinner instead when it was cooler. We were welcomed back and given a table outside in the lovely patio where there was extremely tasteful live background music....More

We had driven past this winery one day so we decided to drive back another day and do a tasting. What originally drew us was the fairytale like building that you can see from the road. Once you drive into the winery, the buildings take...More

We visited on a rainy day and had a mixed experience. There were no tours available for several hours and nothing to do other than the wine tasting -- no opportunity to walk around and see the operations or winemaking. The kitchen opened later than...More

I would ask the winery directly. I'm just a user of TripAdvisor who posted a review. In any case, I hope you have fun.
