I so enjoyed the wine tasting with employee Jose leading the way. He was so polite and informative. The wines were delicious and we left with four bottles. The cider donuts were to die for. A lovely way to spend an afternoon. .

We had a wonderful time last Saturday night on the full moon snowshoe hike. Beautiful night, beautiful place, great wine and entertainment, and the owner John couldn't have been nicer. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much John!
