Great wines, comfortable tasting room and wonderful and informative staff. I did not get to tour the winery, but have heard it's worth while.

We enjoyed our trip here so much. Chad, the owner, was amazingly informative and beyond kind to a curious non drinker. Beautiful scenery, a gorgeous vineyard, and excellent company. I could not have enjoyed the day more. Highly recommended.
