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

We did the groupon experience and have been to other Florida wineries and this was very enjoyable. Its a small place but the cutest couple own this and made it a fun experience. I live in Ohio and my girlfriend lives in Florida and this is the BEST wine I've found so far in the U.S. They make the wine... More

We attended the Wine Snob event and had a very enjoyable time. The owners know a great deal about wine and love to share their knowledge. We learned how to properly taste wine and how to know for sure that the wine brought to us is what we ordered and also drinkable. If you are looking for a fancy California... More

Despite the bad reviews, we had a great time. We also haven't done many wine tasting events like this. The owners were nice, the wine tasted good. We got a deal on Groupon so the price was great. We plan on returning for their wine and chocolate tasting event.
