The host was a real jerk! Might have been better with a more professional and congenial host on Saturday, May 26th. Wish I'd gotten the guy's name....he didn't introduce himself to us as we stepped up to the tasting counter....the guy had the gall to ask US to move down when another couple came in AFTER we had started tasting....they could have easily walked past us and placed themselves at the open space at the counter!! Then he moved our bowl of pretzels to THEM and offered us no replacement! Then we noticed that our pours were 1/2 the size of the two groups to the right of us....the guy had the nerve to respond to my wife, who said she could barely get a taste of what the wine was like, with "there are at least 2-4 sips there, you need to pace yourself" . Shame on us for not just walking out RIGHT then. We felt insulted and ripped off at this place. We were treated like "chopped liver." Hope you improve your customer skills, dude! We just might have been the best customers of your weekend! Winery management, train and check on your staff once in a while! You'll increase your sales.
