During the summer they host a large two day musical/food event that should not be missed. A visit here is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening when they have entertainment. As for the wines, their Seaport... More

We were very impressed with all the wines we tasted and were surprised by how much we liked wines outside our "typical" interests (pink noir for example). We purchased... More
