2 of my friends and I met Abby while stopping in for a tasting. She was incredibly hospitable and genuine, showing us around the place and explaining how her family runs the business. The prosecco and chardonnay were delicious, I am a big fan of prosecco and was excited to find them and learn they are the only prosecco producers... More

My husband and I recently did a bus wine tour and found this place to be the best. Fabulous father and daughter hosts, incredible products and it was sooooo nice for someone to take the time to tell us the entire process and the story of how they got into the winemaking business. This was the one vineyard where we... More

The owner's daughter poured our tastings at this vineyard. You could tell she really had enthusiasm for her job. It was an extremely personalized experience and the perfect way to end our day of touring boutique vineyards. I especially enjoyed drinking the wine before it was put into the bottles.

I first visited Viszlay on the Platypus wine tour a couple years ago and it was, by far, my favorite vineyard. Not only was John a fantastic host, his wines and prosecco are amazing. He is very knowledgeable about wine, without being the least bit pretentious. You can see he has a passion for his craft and it becomes even... More

Loved the place, going back to get more wine. The owner was very friendly and spent a lot of time with our group explaining the various grapes and educating us.

Dumb luck brought us to the winery 3 years ago and we have come back each year. The wine is very good but it is the winemaker John that really makes for an enjoyable experience. He is very knowledgeable and willing to talk about the wines and the vineyard. He has introduced more varietals and he continues to work on... More

Our favorite stop on a wine tour. Absolutely delicious wines. Dad and daughter are the soul staff of this beautiful vineyard creating interesting juice. The patio is relaxing and comfortable even in 90 degree heat of the valley. John, the owner, farmer and wine maker comes out to talk about his wine as if he's your best friend. Can't wait... More

We stopped at Viszlay on a tour arranged by Platypus tours (also highly recommended). John (owner) told us how he got in the business of running a vineyard while pouring and giving tasting notes on the wines, which were all excellent. I regretted the fact that we were limited in how much wine we could take back to Canada but... More

Our second stop with our wine tour, wines served are all estate grade and was greeted by owner, his dad and daughter who ran the tasting.

This was the first stop on our wine tour. It was likely the the smallest winery we stopped at and the tasting was run by the owner, John. Great wines, great view and a life story that was exceptional - but you will to meet John to experience it.
