Fine experience to taste the excellent wines produced by this family winery while sitting in the shade of a big walnut tree and looking out at the vines. Owners & wine-maker will explain all about growing the grapes and creating the different wines. Highly recommended.

Only about 10 minutes from downtown with easy directions if you call ahead or GPS. Taste under a walnut tree overlooking vineyard. We enjoyed every taste and took away a few bottles. Nice people and good story about their wines.

Perhaps we came on a bad day? We made reservations and arrived on time. As soon as we arrived, an owner came out with bottles of wine. This owner did not seem friendly and we felt we were rushed. We spent at the most 30...More

Lovely owner poured us some great wine under a beautiful tree in her front yard. We had no appointment, but she was gracious and invited us to taste. I will go back!
