Tried the wine at a local eatery. Made the trip to the winery to purchase some, only to be told that that brand was only sold in local diners. No options given, unfortunately drove away empty handed.More

I thought I would drop in on my tour of the area and I was met with less than a friendly staff and service. Don't bother going. The tasting was rushed and the service curt and rushed. The wines were mediocre at best.More
