Excellent winey on the Wine Spectator list. Worth the visit. We happened to be the last two into the winey and as a result we were treated to a personal tasting. Happy, happy and much appreciated. Go for the ice wine and the Saperavi

The wine assistant was smug and the wine (save one) was below average. The one we liked, Dry Reisling, we purchased. That was the only thing that prevented a poor rating.

Mike was an absolutely wonderful host for our tasting. He is tremendously knowledgeable, and shares information freely. The saperavi wine is outstanding. The reserve is pricey, but is worth it for a special occasion. The Smokehouse Red is an excellent blend, and is a great...More
