We visited four different wineries and this was by far my favourite. The wine is superb and the staff are professional, but very welcoming and personable. This place is a must see and the 'Confidence' bubbly rose is a must buy!

Tasting 8th generation wines was a really nice experience. All their wines are really good and the lady that helped us was really nice and knowledgeable.

Stopped by to pick up some wine for a dinner. Great staff and super good wines. They have a few Riesling offerings and they are certainly some of the best in the valley. Super convenient location as well.

Right off the highway (easy to access). Very good wine. Service was friendly. Nice outdoor seating area to relax. Nicely arranged interior. Even had a "Kid's drawer" of toys out of the way to help entertain our toddler.
