Walter Shug started this place to make wine. He did a great job. Wines made in the European style. Great history and wine. They do a very nice Pinot and a good Chardonnay. Small friendly place to taste wine.

We found this place only by recommendation. It's a cute little winery hidden up the mountain a bit and off the beaten path. I highly recommend you stop in. Great Pinot niors and Chardonnay!
