“Exactly what a wine tasting experience should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

The tasting room is adorned with family and local artwork including quilts, paintings and photos, which makes it visually interesting while tasting. Aside from the wines, the best part was the relaxed atmosphere and talking to the server who was obviously knowledgeable and passionate about the wines. We tried their reserve level wines, but actually liked their second label wines better (especially at their price point). Their second label is Snosrap, which is a tongue twister until you realize that it's Parsons spelled backward. We ended up with a three pack of the Snosrap - a Pinot, a Rhone-ish blend and a Bordeaux. It was one of the best tasting room experiences of the day and definitely worth a visit.

“Wonderful wine tasting and lovely selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

My husband and I thought Parsonage was probably our favorite wine of the day on the wine trolley tour. We enjoyed the selection and purchased as much as we could get in our luggage. We chose the Bordelais Red Wine. The inside of the winery was very interesting as the owner's wife is a quilter and the inside was lined with huge prints of her quilts. Her designs have been used on the front of their bottles. What talent! Don't miss Parsonage! The lady sharing the wine with us was very sweet and knowledgeable. She really sold the wine!
