With wine selections like DETENTION and HOMEWORK, how could you not like this place? Great biscuits to munch in between tastings. Cute props for pictures against the chalkboard as well as neat gift items. A definite stop!

Cute place, okay wines. Love the décor of the place. No Napa here but a fun tasting and we bought a bottle of a red blend that was pretty good.

First time customer here. We were hoping for indoor or outdoor seating but there was none. Just a wine tasting area in the middle of the room. We sampled all of their red wines and the hard cider. The driest wine we could find was...More

Yes. I believe it was only about $5 for several different types of wines. You choose.
