We LOVE this place. Great wine, primarily Spanish and Portuguese varietals- which makes the tastings unique. The employees here are always pleasant, and are perfectly happy to chat with you. There is a small, quiet seating area outside that makes it feel so far away...More

Good tasting wine. Got a bottle of the Red. Easy in and out. If your downtown you should stop in. You can buy wine by the glass. I think this place would be great latter in the day so you could talk to the locals.

We had heard about this tasting room from several people, so we knew we needed to stop. They were very helpful and accommodating. Great selection of different and not typical kinds of wines.

This little winery, a couple streets off of the main road, was a find! We had a groupon, but if you want to taste, it's only $5.00 and they refund the tasting price if you purchase a bottle. They pour five pours and each one...More
