Beautiful views with a Board Head Deli on site. The pizza is delicious and the wines are great. Italian style varietals and 100% estate grown. Definitely need to visit and take a seat on the wooden Adirondack chairs!

We had about an hour with tasting and food/wine pairing. The staff was friendly and informative. Hard to hear the speaker in a large room when they described the vintages. It was enjoyable and the wine was good, but not great.

A small place, small prices, and big views with great atmosphere. Sandwiches were fresh and rightly priced. Serving staff were all excellent. Will come back again.
