Disappointed that we didn't have a tour scheduled, and so we could only taste wine, but it was delicious and I took some home. Nice gift shop, too.

Stopped in on our way to rafting. Had a couple samples and were going to purchase a few bottles but were told that it shouldn't be kept in a hot car all day. Great advice. We stopped back after rafting to make our purchase. In talking with the gentleman, he gave us great suggestions on where to eat! Great wine... More

We read about the winery in the visitor guide and wanted to visit. I thought that we would see Monks making wine and the Nuns serving the cheese. It turns out that the Monks and Nuns moved out several years ago and the Church sold the property. Well, it is being put to good use. The wine maker makes a... More

We walked into a very nice gift shop and at the counter was the wine tasting. You can follow along in a booklet about each wine and most are free with a couple that are $1.00. We tasted about 6 different wines. There are pretzels, bread/oil for dipping. No pressure to buy. Great selection of wine and lots of wine... More

Yes, they have wine and let you sip it. But there is nothing to see, no history of the winery nothing. It is more like a large souvineer shop that has wine type items. If you have ever been to a winery in a place like Napa or Sonoma you will be dissapointed.

I went to the gift shop today to purchase several bottles of wine. I was there approx. 10 minutes. Not one person spoke to me that entire time!! There were 2 women working there. One was helping someone else, but I was never acknowledged as being in the room!! I am going to the western slope next week, and I... More

Enjoyed visiting the winery. Was pretty tough to get a tasting as it was crowded...and the wine tasting area is too congested...should consider changing...Gift store was nice...bought some nice gifts for family. Overall experience positive...They could put in a restaurant....would be great.

My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant hour and a half in The Winery's tasting room sampling their various locally bottled wines and chatting with the staff and other customers. The wine was excellent and we purchased a number of bottles for our home wine rack. The Tasting Room is nicely stocked as a wine related gift shop with glass... More

Terrible venue for a craft fair. Bathrooms were not clean, trash overflowing. Unfortunately event promotion was not handled adequately. This event was not advertised and not well attended. A real shame to have 80 + vendors stuck in this old gym for three days with no customers. I will not attend this event again.

Had a private tasting outside, picnic table, cheese trays, all wines. Teresa was great and answered all of questions, gave us an education about wine and we had a great time. My wife and I each had a favorite so we brought a few bottles home. It is $25/pp for the private tasting but a local radio station had a... More
