Over several days we tried numerous vineyards in the area and Rickety Bridge was one of the best - in fact before our visit here (4th or 5th vineyard we tried) we considered giving up on wine tasting in the area.
The tasting itself was in a relaxed and friendly manner. The staff are genuinely interested in wine (and luckily the wines at Rickety Bridge are good), they serve a decent pour and encourage you to really enjoy the wine rather than many places where the whole process is so commercial and soulless!
Definitely add the vineyard to your itinerary. There is no need to ring ahead and you can also enjoy a leisurely lunch here (may need to book lunch depending on the day/season).
