We loved this winery - one of our favorites! The staff was awesome and the wine was delicious. Loved the cherry cider and late harvest Riesling. The patio is gorgeous and has a fireplace and tables overlooking the vineyards.

I was able to do my wine tasting at an attractive bar outside on a beautiful day. My first taste was free and I paid $5 to taste five more wines. Good wines so I bought several bottles.

We bikes here on an afternoon wine-tasting bike tour. Ate our lunch in the shade, beside an evergreen stand, overlooking the vineyard. This winery has an extensively landscaped "back yard" with attractive patios, canopies and sitting areas.
