If you are into wine, meeting the owner and spending quality time talking about their products Porter Bass is an absolute must! While it is appointment only and more than a bit out of the way, it is well worth the time. A VERY SMALL...More

Fine experience to taste the excellent wines produced by this family winery while sitting in the shade of a big walnut tree and looking out at the vines. Owners & wine-maker will explain all about growing the grapes and creating the different wines. Highly recommended.

Only about 10 minutes from downtown with easy directions if you call ahead or GPS. Taste under a walnut tree overlooking vineyard. We enjoyed every taste and took away a few bottles. Nice people and good story about their wines.

We made a stop here based on a recommendation. It's by appointment but they accommodated us. Small selection of wines but they were all great!

Lovely owner poured us some great wine under a beautiful tree in her front yard. We had no appointment, but she was gracious and invited us to taste. I will go back!
