Tremendous wines but the elderly lady working the tasting room was rude and uin-professional. I tried to buy several bottles of wine but she was in unaccommodating and rude. Walked out with nothing....

I have to laugh at the reviewers who said (a) you can find better/equal wine in Oregon and Washington and (b) this is average wine. I have extensively wine-tasted (and been a wine-club member in many) in Italy, France, Willamette Valley (Oregon), Washington, and Napa...More
