“Nice Stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

We stopped here on our way home from a visit to the Conserators Center to do the wine tasting and purchase a bottle of wine that would make a donation to the center. They also have select wines that make a donation to the lung asso.
The shop was very small but very nice. The staff was very friendly and informative. There is a wonderful porch where you can sit and relax in the shade.
My daughter is the wine drinker in the family and she was impressed with several of them.
I pretty much go to the vineyards to spend time with her and her efforts to school me on the finer points of wine often ends up with "yucky face" but I do enjoy sweet dessert wines on occasion. The Apple wine was wonderful. Very crisp, light and sweet. It is rare that I actually buy a bottle but this was the exception

“So many delicious wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Be sure to do the wine tasting here! Usually about 12 samples per tasting at only $5 feels like a steal. The wines are tasty and the staff are incredibly knowledgeable. This generous winery also donates a portion of their proceeds to either the Conservators' Center or lung cancer research if you purchase one of their specialty bottles.

“A tale of two tastings”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Been twice. First time, really enjoyed at least the Packhouse Red. The second time, I bought a bottle of something to be nice but the wine was really awful. We won't be back...
