Nice wines, cheeky little place. Friendly staff. Probably the most generous pour along Seneca Lake! Easy to miss the driveway if you're not careful.

Grace, owner and winemaker has certainly filled this charming place with grace. Wines were solid, serious but fun. Great pricing and plenty of personality. I would definitely recommend to my aunt and uncle...little joke for Grace.
