Enjoyed the personal and informative tour and wine tasting by the owner and his brother of their small winery and wines. We bought four bottles of their cabs that we enjoyed. Highly recommend visiting. Need an appointment.

We joined! Mary Ann gave us a great tour of the winery with several tastes of their wonderful reds. We even sat & talked all about the winery with the owner, Ren, & listened to fun stories. Great time!
