We enjoyed the wines here. My husband likes reds and I like whites. There were good ones for each of us to enjoy. They give nice samples that are large enough so you get a good taste of the wine. Not much explanations of the wines was given. Amy was our bartender and she was very friendly. They were not very busy when we were there so it was a relaxing and enjoyable tasting time.

Metered parking is available on the side, otherwise if it is not so busy and you get lucky, it is possible to find parking curbside. My husband likes merlots and I tend to go for more Riesling wines. They have wine tasting here that is reasonably priced and both my husband, as well as myself found wines we could buy to bring home which we did. They have cute items to shop for. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend.

Very nice selection of dry wines both red and white and sweet as well. No matter your wine pallete you should find a wine you like here.
Very attractive wine tasting area and display of wines.
Also informative server. She just did not give us the circle approach. She actually explained where the grapes were grown so we knew if they were locally grown.
Very pleasant tasting experience.
Just make sure you don't pass this place by.

Wonderful wine tasting experience! They were very busy but they didn't rush you. They have a huge selection of different wines to try. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Cant wait to go back when the weather is nice.

We've gone on several winery tastings. This one was pretty good. We liked all of the wines we tried and bought a couple bottles. This place does not waive the tasting fee if you purchase wine, which a lot of other wineries we've been to do.
