When family and friends get together there is a magical sense of camaraderie of family. Il Cantina Sociale di La Familglia is Our Society of Wine Producers & you are now a member of the family. Throughout your days of wine-making with us you will learn from second, third & fourth generation Italian-Americans the joys and traditions of wine making. From crushing and pressing to racking and bottling, you will be involved in each step resulting in your own barrel of Vino della Casa labeled, of course, with your name. During your time with us, in addition to working with the grapes, we invite you to experience the Italian way, as we know it. We will share with you our new family, the great meals, the lore, the tradition and the story telling that has made for such camaraderie and resulted in so many special times. You'll probably even pick up a few of our favorite phrases and gestures along the way. We invite you to stroll the gardens, play a game of bocce or horseshoes, or lend a hand in the kitchen preparing for the evening's feast!

After making wine for a few seasons with John and Mary-lee I felt as one of the family. They opened their winery up with the true love of Manga in the heart. They welcome every quest as family. Not to mention their wines are by far fabulous. Specialty favorite is the Cabernet/ Syrah blend, is my personal favorite. Dee and... More

My friend and I had the perfect time there for a wine and chocolate tasting. Pam was very friendly and knowledgable! Besides the wine tasting incredible (bought 2 bottles), the live music was great and Pam made sure we felt welcome. Don't lose her!

A lovely Sunday afternoon took us 35 minutes north to this quaint winery. We were met by a fire pit outside and friendly hostesses inside(Bella and Anastasia). Unfortunately they don't offer the menu right away and we found out by accident that they serve food. We split a panini- it was enough for two- with turkey, Apple, and Brie. It... More

Came with a large group of friends last weekend for a little birthday celebration. After first stopping at Preston Ridge on a cold, dreary fall day, we made our way over to this newbie and had the best time. They offer two different size tastings (5 or 7 wines) all which were great! And the staff was second to none.... More

This winery was right down the street from our B&B, so we figured we would give it a try. A small winery but on a nice pond for a view and most grapes right nearby to see. We were not expecting much but we were delighted to find that the wine was beyond expectations. Delicious and tasty. I don't even... More

We arrived at the winery (which is in a gorgeous area) and were greeted by a very friendly young woman. We looked at the wine list and we were a little disappointed to see mostly reds and dry wines. She recommended purchasing a glass of one of the sweeter chardonnays and sitting outside. The prices were kinda high, but she... More

Came on a Sunday afternoon and right away the place had the wow factor with the serene surroundings and the little lake in the background, the guitar guy playing a soft live song. Well the rest was disappointing : I got their sizzle Merlot which the local sommelier will call it " with lemon flavor" and I will call it... More

We visited this vineyard this past weekend. What really makes it stand out from the rest is that you can do a wine tasting outside. There is a large lake and near the lake are couches, chairs, fire pits and a patio with a grape trellis over it. You can choose to sit wherever you want and the people who... More

We visited with nine people in our party on a Sunday afternoon, all the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and fun, making our time spent there so relaxing. We chose to do the wine tasting that consisted of five wines, the staff came out to us pouring each wine and explaining about what we were going to try. The wine was... More
