Had a great day finishing up the wine tasting tour at Equus. Sonja, Rebecca and Zach are great hosts. We always save Equus as our last stop on the tour. Location is great and the wine is wonderful. Continue to keep up the great work. You guys are awesome.

The location itself was beautiful, had the weather been better we would have enjoyed walking around their grounds. We walked into the tasting room and were immediately greeted by Zach at the bar and... More

OK, the taste of the wines weren't my favorite but the tasting experience was nice and the scenery is lovely. I'm a Bourbon and Moonshine drinker but I do love a sweet wine from time to time. I tried 6 different flavors and even the sweet ones had a bit of a bitter after taste to me. Passionate Kiss, served... More

We stopped in before dinner at Holly Hill Inn. The wines were good- the staff friendly & knowledgeable. I would recommend adding this spit to your trail visit.

On a whim we thought why not run by Equus Run!? Scarlett, our Aussie agreed to join us and we were pleased to see this sweet vineyard.. Summer's over, Autumn is being a bugger, so it was really quiet. We totally enjoyed having a glass of wine on the deck and seeing the darling 'art' around.

Thank you so much for visiting us on a beautiful Fall day. I assume Scarlett is a doggie and we always love pet pictures visiting the winery. You may have seen my mascot 'Tuxedo' the kitty cat. Share if you have some! More

My mom and I planned a visit out of town to some wineries and this was our first and favorite stop on the list. We love dry wine but are open to others. Christie was there and we go to know her well and enjoyed our conversation. She also introduced us to a beautiful cat named tuxedo 😁 Such a... More

I planned to participate in the wine tasting but only did 5 of the 6. Really didn't like any though I bought a glass of the white. This is a small winery. What I did enjoy was the music they had on a Monday after day.
