The wine was very good. I had the dry riesling and my wife had the chardonnay, both were very good. Nice outdoor seating area to enjoy a glass. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

We found the people here to be very friendly and knowledgeable about the wine. Plus they organize the selections as dry, semi-dry, sweeter, and cherry, so you can really zero in on what you like. Plus the view is great!
