Beautiful vineyard and delicious wine. Wine tasting is reasonably priced and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The owner introduced himself to our group and poured our tastings. He was lots of fun and very kind. Great experience with friends.

This place is a little off the path but a great find. The wines are good and so is the food. We took an extra 3 bottles home!

And lunch was creative and delicious. Started with a tasting flight and enjoyed nearly every glass. Stopped for a wonderful fresh lunch and then bought Sangiovese, Syrah and Tempranillo. Quite worthy!
