The gentleman delivering the wine tasting was a bit young and must have been newer to the role. His speaking was a bit rehearsed and he had a little more background to share but overall I wasn’t overly impressed. The Syrah....however was excellent!

A great little spot for sitting and sipping great wine! No restaurant here (just a heads up) but really good wine- worth popping in and checking out.

One of the smaller places with lovely service, great atmosphere and excellent wines. The ten dollar tasting was great. One of our favourites. Recommended.

This is a winery that the larger tour groups will not likely include. It is a delightful stop and you'll find quality wines that have received excellent recognition. The setting is delightful and the staff is most engaging and helpful. If you plan to visit...More
