This was the first winery that we visited on a wine tour. The grounds were beautiful and reminded me of Italy. We opted for the more expensive tasting ($15 for 4 wines) in the downstairs tasting room. I think that the extra money was worth it. The downstairs has a very nice and more relaxing atmosphere. The wines were unique - not the ones that I can buy at the liquor store at home. I really liked being able to choose the wines that I wanted to try (this was not the case at all of the wineries we visited). I split a tasting with my husband and they had no problem with 2 of us sharing. I really enjoyed their Chardonnays - not as oaky as some others. My only gripe would be the woman who helped us with our tasting. She was not very friendly and didn't seem that happy to be there. One person in our group said that she was "robotic" and that was an apt description. Maybe we just caught her on an off day but we were not impressed. I would also encourage you to stop in at the gift shop. Not only can you buy wines, but they had some great items for wine lovers. And, if you spend $80, your tasting fee is refunded.
