This is a great place to go before or after the theatre at Huron County Playhouse. The wines are interesting and there is great patio overlooking the vineyards. The chacuterie platter while filling could be a bit more exciting and innovative.

We took the organised tour. The building is spectacular. It's a very nice place overall. I find the tour a little expensive (30$ + tx for 2 people) for what it was. The young lady leading the tour was very nice and doing her best...More
