Friends met here to have a bottle of wine before dinner. While there we did a wine tasting. Enjoyed it so much, bought 3 bottles. Good wines.

This is one of the most casual vineyards I've been to which is refreshing. It had no character at all though. It has a tasting building and a building where you can buy wine. In between there are some outside tables. Some right next to...More

Enjoyed our time at the winery. The wine is delicious, and you can buy a bottle and cheese, crackers and sausage, and sit outside and enjoy the day. They have a very nice selection of wine to taste.

We had fun here with a tasting. We were rushed a little as we tasted (compared to a recent trip to Canada Wineries) but we did try 10 wines and were able to buy one and picnic on the patio outside the tasting room

My friend and I went to this winery after visiting Monticello for the day. Very cute place with a great deal on wine tastings. Ask for Sandy! She is the greatest! Loved her!
