Distillery and winery, a little bit of both worlds. I like the maple bourbon enough to take one with us. Informative, friendly staff and a delicious sampling. Worth the time to visit.

Limited wine selection, great staff. Better selection of spirits. 10% case discount on wine. Four free wine samples, 3 for $5 spirit tasting. Driveways need massive improvements.

I always make it a point to stop at a local winery when we are on vacation. This winery is definitely in a beautiful location and the building is beautiful but the wine is just okay. The majority are sweet. It is not the best...More

It was the best wine experience we have ever had! From the moment we walked in the door we felt welcome. The staff was personable and knowledgeable! The tour was great and we learned so much. Thank you for making our day so special!

I'm a fan of dry reds, so I was a bit dubious about the selection here. But their chambourcin is as good as any I've ever tasted, and the Chardonnay is excellent. We also went to the distillery and sampled their 'shine, and the Frost...More

We stumbled upon this winery while vacationing in the area. The wines were quite good, the Norton being my favorite. This winery is on top of the biggest hill in the neighborhood, and has a medieval castle feel with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains....More
