Visited on 10/29/2016 - a little cooler out yet and they had the outdoor bar set up with heaters and a fire in the pit. It wasn't really sunny but the staff - we had Liz as our server - was friendly, welcoming and engaging. I was glad because our first stop had left my companions less-than-enthusiastic (thanks Liz!!!). The... More

We visited in cold weather and drank our wine outside with the outdoor fireplace. So lovely. Loved the warm spiced wine the most.

All wines tried were very good. The Pinot noir was my personal favorite. The dry Riesling was very good as well as several of the whites.

Best view and atmosphere of any winery I've been to in TC and I've been to most. Wine is also fantastic. Great tasting menu. Will be back next time we visit.

Maybe it's after other wine tastings, or maybe just the setting, butt this place was everyone! The setting was great, the wines superb, and the staff was friendly and informative. Excellent experience. Highly recommended!

We recently visited Shady Lane Cellars on a Saturday night in August for their summer music series. It was a beautiful evening of wine tasting and listening to music from the Whiskey Charmers in Shady Lane's gorgeous outdoor tasting area. Hard to find a better way to spend the early part of the evening before heading to dinner. We really... More

My wife and I always stop here when we are in the area. We brought my wife's family here and they enjoyed the peace, beauty and wine of this great relaxing venue.

Beautiful setting for a winery!! Large patio and grassy area where you can sit with your wine and listen to live music or play bocce ball and cornhole. You are given one complimentary pour & after that the prices are pretty comparable to a bar/restaurant. Peaceful & amazing Pinot noir!!
