We enjoyed our visit to the winery and vineyards. The weather was perfect so it was a great time to be outside. The wine tasting staff were very knowledgeable. We tried several wines and the cider. We bought a few bottles to enjoy at home.

Lovely setting very close to the Jolly Pumpkin Restaurant. Small tasting room and gift shop. They have a larger area outdoors that appeared to be available for tours. They also have a large frame outside where you can have your picture taken

Absolutely. Staff very caring but remember it is a winery so there are couples enjoying the day. But your family can enjoy the view and the wine and the surroundings. A peaceful and beautiful spot!
