I'd heard some good things about this place, so we decided to check it out.
First off, I will say that we had to cancel our first tour/tasting appointment, due to a very sick family pet, and they were very nice about it, considering we gave them only a couple hours notice.
So we went a week later. Friendly people, and the tour was entertaining and informative.
We were there almost 2 hours.
But the grounds were nothing special (although it was the end of January, so the vines were bare). The buildings were nice, but not spectacular.
The wine? Well, I don't drink wine. My wife tasted it, and she liked the Syrah the most. But they were all overpriced, and the syrah was probably the only one she'd ever consider buying.
She usually prefers chardonnays and sauv blancs, but theirs were nothing special.
Overall, for the $30 this cost us for 2 people (thank you, GILT CITY), not a bad way to start the day, but if I'd paid more than that, I wouldn't be as happy about it.
