I went to do a wine tasting with my wife and daughter and it was a good experience. The young lady was who was serving us was polite and helpful. She even apologized for making us wait, which we really didn't and it was served to us at a normal pace. Upon completion of the wine tasting, I went out to the backyard to check out the vineyard and the area. I walked no more than 4 feet onto the grass when I was stopped by one of their staff and was told I was not allowed to picnic in the backyard. First, I had a sling pack (containing my camera gear) which was not big enough to hold food, drinks or any additional item(s) you may need for a picnic. Second, if I were to set up and have a picnic, at least wait until then to tell me. I didn't see any sign on the premise that prohibited you from bringing any outside items. The accusation of me having a picnic without proof left a bad taste in my mouth which could have been handled more tactfully. I would have given it 3-4 stars but I had to give it 2.
