“Worth your time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We had a Living Social for this vineyard. I'm familiar with the area, so was surprised there was a vineyard in S. Dartmouth. It's not locatable by GPS, but pretty close. We drove up into a residential development of beautiful spread out homes. We initially thought this was some kind of scam and we would be going to someones house to drink wine in their living room. There is a small sign in the front of the house directing you around back to the winery. As we approached the back yard, we saw a sprawling lawn with the vineyard in the distance. The tasting took place in the back. There was a tasting in progress so we went out into the yard,and walked through the vineyard.
When it was time for our tasting, our guide "Bob" walked us through the history of how the owner got started in the business and the process of wine making. We tasted 7 wines. All of them were pretty good. As we tasted, Bob told us more about that particular wine. We were with a small group of other tasters, feeling like at the end we had found new friends.
The tasting lasted close to an hour.
If you get the chance, check it out. More fun than I anticipated.

“A quaint setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This location was a little difficult to locate at first, mainly you weren't sure if you were in the right location; it definitely isn't your typical vineyard setting. But once you arrive and don't be startled, you will have to walk around back of the house, you will enjoy a great view from the tasting area of the vineyard with a tree lined back drop. Bob was full of great information and seemed very interested in anything you may have to say or comment about. He made you feel comfortable within minutes of your arrival. The wines are very good and the choice of grapes for the region, I think are spot on. If you are ever heading back west from the Cape area, this is well worth a little detour back home, I know I will. If you have the time, stay and enjoy a bottle and the view.

“Had a much better time than expected.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

When we arrived we were a bit confused because you are at a home....you follow the lawn around the side and come to a tasting room under a porch. We didn't have great expectations but were really pleased with the whole experience. First, the man doing the tasting was very nice and made you feel at ease. The wines are solid and the view from the back of the house is breathtaking! We had some friends meet us and enjoyed a bottle of wine while sitting in their chairs overlooking the vineyard. I look forward to our next trip there!

“Fun backyard vineyard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This vineyard is literally in someone's backyard. You go around to the back of their house and there's a tasting area set up under their deck. The tasting is only suppose to be for 6 wines but we were given many more then that. The wine is good for the region and Bob was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
