Sweely Estate Winery has become Early Mountain. Sweely's was nice but poorly done. I liked the Sweelys and wish them well.

Sweely Estate Winery no longer exists, it was renamed Early Mountain Vineyard several years ago. This should be removed from the listings.

I am not a wine expert but my three friends are and while they were as happy as I to be there, if the 20 wines sampled they were impressed with only one or two. We had a quick bite from their lunch menu and had fun the little shop. The surrounding countryside is fantastic. Bottom line- good fun but... More

It's set in the middle of nowhere and the venue itself is beautiful. We walked in and the tasting actually was in the back of the room. We felt a little lost, like walking into a wine gift shop or something. We had our tasting which was nice and the lady was very sweet, but the wines were nothing to... More

The facility was top notch, but the wine was pretty average. A wine tour of how they make their wine would have been nice.
