Good range of decent wines, a bit overcrowded in the tasting room but the hostess did a decent job. No waiver of the $15 tasting fee for buying wines - that were overpriced anyhow - unless you joined their club. Their Cab was not available...More

My daughter and I visited on a Sunday afternoon. We each enjoyed all 5 wines on the tasting list. Staff was so friendly. Sat outside in a quiet picnic area overlooking the vineyard and terrific mountain views. Highly recommend.

Enjoyable visit but we visited better vineyards. The wine was nice but not our favourite and the tasting rooms were a bit gloomy. The setting is really nice and it was a pleasant visit though.
