“Fun experience, lovely grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

The folks that help you with the wine tasting are knowledgeable and friendly. The wine is actually pretty good! This was our second time visiting this winery (the last time was a couple of years ago) and we liked it just as much this time as the last. The grounds are really nice to explore and take photos.

“Least desireable of our wine tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

We visited several winerys and vinyards on rhe "290 Wine Trail" while in Fredericksburg and this was the least desireable of the ones we visited. It was a Saturday and the place was overcrowded for starters. We stepped up to a open place at the counter for our tasting and the lady that "greeted" us seemed in a hurry and put the wine list down in front of us and told us to let her know which 6 wines we wanted to taste, then stood there impatiently while we looked over the choices. We felt rushed between each one and then in the middle of it all, she just left and we later saw her with another couple on the other side hosting tgeir tasting. A very nice young man saw we were unattended and stepped over to finish hosting our tasting. I wish we had had him from the start! Anyway, we did not find a wine there we liked and did not purchase any there. We much prefered Perdenales Cellars, Messina Hof and Grape Creek vinyards both for wine and hospitality..

“Fun winery and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Very nicely setup for wine tasting and one on one vs some wineries that served so many at the same time and ignored you. Excellent customer service and had fun, learned about each wine, and not pushy like some. Got their just after they opened so we were finishing when the tours came and it started getting busy but they have a large enough young staff with energy to keep up with the crowds like many of the other wineries didn't. Their lavender is fabulous also and would recommend as it is the real lavender that smells heavenly. Will be back again this year
