Great Wine!

Quirky and off the beaten path. Owners are friendly and a little eccentric, the wines they make are FABULOUS! Worth the floor show....

We found this winery to be a total joke. The interior attempts to be eclectic but comes off as cluttered, cobweb ridden, and hokey. Reminiscent of my neighbors garage... If you're expecting cheese and chocolate, you'd better be ok with a hotdog paper bowl of cheese sticks, Hershey kisses, etc. The wine selection consisted of 5 choices-only one of which... More

What a charming couple! We spent almost two hours enjoying wonderful wine, chocolates, a delightful couple and their adorable puppy. My sister, brother in law, husband and best friend (Connecticut, Georgia and Florida) were delighted to be welcomed into the owners fascinating winery and share delightful stories of wine making. We felt like we were visiting old friends. Unique. Interesting.... More

Took advantage of a Groupon to come here. We took the one hour session on how to become Wine Snobs. There were some interesting points he made that I hadn't heard before. Wasn't very impressed with the wine. Tho I did buy several bottles and the sangria mix. I have been to Napa Valley a couple of times and there... More

We stopped in for a tasting and bought a couple of bottles. If you're looking for vineyard wine tasting like California or N. Michigan, this is not it. However, we love to drink some wine and have interesting experiences, so this was great! We used to live in the Tampa area 10 years ago and stopped here then. After 10... More

Everyone there acted condescending and rude to us. Only had one wine that was even remotely good. Had a conversation with one lady who seemed drunk or on anti depressants...or both....they have not a clue about wine or anything else for that matter. Stay clear of this place.

Waste of time and money. Dingy, dirty place. Owners were rude and on the strange side. Wine was not that good and overpriced. The talk was stopped and started several times always going back to the beginning and repeating. The chocolate pairing was a sample box of Russel Stover chocolates. Must have gone to the outlet and bought them out.... More

Husband and wife team answered door in duty clothes and looking unshowered. Place was dirty. Very strange people- gave me the creeps. Wine smelled like a combo of bad grapes with a touch of sewage!!!! I could not drink it and was desperate to get out of there AAOS fast as possible. These people are either mentally unbalanced or scammers... More

I received a Groupon for a birthday gift and as I LOVE wine, I was so excited to attend. My friend and I showed up at 3pm, rang the bell, and an elderly lady answered the door in what seemed to be her night gown. She asked us for our secret password (which was never mentioned after that so we... More

We love visiting wineries, and this is one of the favorites of one of our friends. We went with them, and were told there was a "Groupon" we could purchase at the winery. It was totally my fault that I didn't ask how much...and for what...but...it wasn't worth it. We ended up paying almost $50.00 for a bottle of wine.... More
