The wines are good and the beers were very good. The restaurant was very nice. The view from all over the winery was spectacular. Wish we had time to stay Friday evening to enjoy the band they were having.

Love to go here for breakfast. All your typical breakfast foods, served hot and quick. My current favorite it the McJohn bagel breakfast sandwich with sausage and a chocolate chip pancake on the side. The omelets are delicious and my husband loves their french toast.
