Grab a lunch and head to Hovey! You can order wines by the bottle of glass then enjoy outside on their picnic tables. Such a fun way to spend a summer day!

Quaint tasting room with wonderful and personable servers. Great prices for high quality wines from sparkling to cabs. They have wonderful grounds outside - so in the summer, bring a picnic and enjoy the atmosphere.
