This place overall had a nice feel to it, you have to walk through the store part in order to get to the tasting bar in the back, but it is worth it. We went on the little tour they had of the winery itself, and although you don't get a free glass of wine with the tour (at least, we didn't), it was still fun to see and we got to do more tastings at the end.

Pros -
- Free Tastings: Unlike Stone's Throw Winery, this place has FREE tastings, as many as you want. There were many people just hovering around the bar and getting liquored up.
- Cheap Wine: Since they age their wine in steel bins instead of wooden barrels, the cost is cheap because they can reuse the barrels and the wine tastes excellent and is cheap overall (it's all in the tour)

Cons -
- No Free Wine on Tour: a little annoying was the fact that you didn't get a free glass of wine on the tour, at least we didn't. Of course at the end of the tour we did get to have more tastings at the bar, however.
- Tour Movie Hard to See: if you sit anywhere but the front row during the mini-movie, you can't see anything because the chairs aren't stacked correctly. I ended up standing and standing near the back in order to see it properly.

And as far as "Neutral" I think I would say that the Tour goes in there. It wasn't the greatest tour overall, but it definitely wasn't the best one, either. If you are looking for how to make wine and a real tour, go elsewhere. This place is fun to taste and they are located in a BEAUTIFUL building, very nice overall.

I have been to this winery twice- did the tour the first time, it's a little cheesy as it involves a talking cherry box and video- but you get to see a lot. The winery is in an old school house and that in itself is pretty cool. All of the wines are priced on the lower end of the scale yet taste amazing. You can sample as many wines as you want- for free if you don't do the tour, 2 or 3 dollars with the tour. I highly, highly recommend the Peninsula Red- it's the best, less fruity, and a little more dry of a wine than all the rest. Also, the blackberry merlot is a great summer wine.
