They usually do an "Art Walk" on Friday's during the summer. Local artisans display their wares and wine tasting. Several cafes serve decent food- but nothing spectacular.

This place is more than a typical winery in that it incorporates historical aspects of life in the 1800's including unique shops with one of a kind items for sale. The wines are great and the tasting room is wonderful.
