“Nice but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Only winery, & we were at 40-50 the last 2 summers, where I was charged a tasting fee. It wasn't even mentioned anywhere else. It was fairly minimal(not the $6 each as mentioned below)but still. I bought 6 bottles of wine so obviously they have some nice wines & great selection.
I'll still give this place a good review because it is a pretty impressive operation & well run but be aware that they don't waive the fee regardless if you buy wine. The only thing I can think of as to why they would do this is maybe the workers in the bar get all this money to supplement a low or no paying job.

“Some of the best wines around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Konzelmann Estate Winery makes their wines in the traditional European manner - - they have excellent baco noirs (several varietie but ask for the one with the peppery after-taste), terrific pinot noirs ( (0, 1), and great whites (reisling, chardonnay). The wine tasting room was re-done within the past several years and offers not only fine wines to taste but wine-related glasses, decanters, herbs, spices etc. The staff is very, very knowledgeable about the wines (explaing tasting flavours, history of the grape, etc) and serve with flair! There is a tasting fee.

“Fun winery, great wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

While so many wineries focus on extremely high wine, we found that Konzelmann focused on make great drinkable wine at reasonable prices. We loved our visit and took home a few bottles to enjoy.

“Best ice wine ever”

If you're up for some ice wine this is the place to go. No wonder it wins all the prices internationally.
