Love the red wine here. Everything we tasted was delicious! My only complaint is that we asked about joining the wine club but we were only interested in red wine, and they didn't have an option for red only so we didn't join.

This place offers two types of tastings: reserved wine and Signature wine. Both are good. When you purchase a bottle, you receive a credit from the tastings.
