Friendly greeting and offered a wine tasting in the sunshine. Generous samples and covered a range of Pinot Gris , Rose and Pinot Noir. Knowledgeable and passionate about the wines. Pleasant morning, smooth and interesting wines. Purchased a few with potential. Will go back and try the food next time and a game of chess.....
