Had a tasting out on the patio overlooking some of the vineyard. Beautiful setting. I felt a little rushed, the pours were quick, 2 at a time. Wine was good.

Sorry but we are not allowed to sell food as part of our permit. We do offer wine and cheese pairings as part of an educational seminar. Call us at the winery @707-963-2784 for more details.
