What a unique winery,? An entirely different taste and the appears to enjoy what they are doing. Bought a bottle to add to our spiced cider holiday drink. Well worth the visit!

Staff was friendly and helpful. Wines are apple based and delicious, a nice change from grape wines. Server gave good advice and fellow wineries.

Entire family loved this place the most of all, from the entertaining host, the very talented (and humble) vitner, and outdoor deck. And all of their wines are made from fruits other than wine!

Excellent wine and wonderful people. Their wine is truly unique, as it's not made with grapes but other fruit. This was by far our favorite winery on the Shawnee wine trail. It is a must visit when in the area.
