So it's 11:00 in the morning and we are ready to taste some delicious wines but our better judgment suggest we should not do this on an empty stomach. So guess what they have...a deli! Perfect! We ordered a cheese and meat platter which had an excellent variety and toasted crostini. We grabbed a table with a beautiful view and... More

Easy drive, delectable wines, both white and reds, and be sure to grab a bite (lunch or cheese platter (Boars Head at that)) and relax! A real pleasure with a friendly atmosphere. What better way to enjoy your favorite wine selection. Oh yes, for those "less refined", like me, they have a local IPA on draft!:-)) great stop while on... More

I am definitely not a wine afficianato, so I may not be the best judge, but I really like this place. It's an awesome relaxed atmosphere, and the staff makes wine tasting fun, and as interesting as you want it to be. Their "deli" menu may seem ordinary with sandwiches and pizza, until you have a bite! Had the Italian... More

The tasting room is spacious, plus they have a deli in the back. We came here just after lunch so we didn't eat, but it did smell good. They had a nice selection of deli meats and cheeses, but we just did the wine tasting this time. The service was good, nice wines, a little crowded on a Saturday, but... More

This place was spacious and beautiful. Dan bought some meat seasoning in their giftshop. We did a tasting and Susan was our attendant. She was friendly and fun and recommended some great wines to taste. We bought a bottle of wine here. The barrel room was amazing! You can freely walk in there and take photos of the barrels and...

We had a great time at this winery. The tasting room staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They told us they recently expanded their facilities. There's a great view and very reasonably priced food. And if you're tasting on a Sunday, they even had the football game on for viewing. As for the wine, the Aglianico is very good.

Wow! The food was amazing and reasonably priced. The staff is so nice, the view is incredible, the tasting room is large so it's not crowded or overwhelming like some wineries. Susan was our pourer and she was great recommending wine based on what we liked. This was a fantastic experience with the ladies! Thank goodness I'm a local and... More

There were seven of us the day we went. It was a little confusing when we arrived. We weren't sure where to start. A nice man helped us, but we weren't sure if he was going to be our server or if someone else was. It took a while to get served. Our friends got served and we were still... More

We come back here each visit, very pleasant. Judy was great talking with us and providing the tasting. The tasting area is pleasant with nice seating around to enjoy. Fee for tasting. Coupons 2 for 1 on different websites..We went home with our favorite the Estate Sangiovese.

They didn't have my fave wine which was a bummer! We arrived with a tour group for tasting and lunch but appeared many other groups arrived at the same time and they seemed a bit understaffed. After a few groups left the atmosphere changed and things flowed much better. The gentlemen pouring for us was knowledgeable and fun. We will... More
