Great, new venue, with top bottles in the tasting. One in particular was stunning — a rustic Chardonnay. Not crowded. You don’t feel boxed in. Relaxing.

I had never heard of Neil Ellis before ! Wines are great especially the whites ! Order a cheese platter for two while tasting enough for four and move on to the next wine-farm so you can nibble further
