We would have spent all afternoon here and had lunch, but we were on a wine tour. I fell in love with the atmosphere of the huge rough sawn beams etc. The wine was fantastic and the food looked amazing as it was served to people's tables. Warm and toasty on a rainy, stormy day. - very romantic!

Had lunch with my wife. We did a quick tasting then sat down for the platter for two. Food was excellent and the waitresses were friendly and efficient. A really nice setting to eat in the barrel room.

Enjoy the free generous complimentary tasting, or spring for tasting the premium wines. Either way, you won't be disappointed. Friendly staff, a beautiful setting and quaint comfy cafe will make you want to stay for a bite.

Here for a large group function. Beautiful room with lovely ambiance of wood and wine barrels. Food was good but portions were not large. Enjoyable night.

We arrived to late on a Monday for lunch, however we took the offer of a free tasting the wines were lovely and we brought 6 bottles. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of pinot gris with some nice blue cheese when we got back to our motel room. The building and gardens are lovely and would be great to have... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed the share platter which is plenty for 2 people and really nice to enjoy with a glass of wine. If you don't like lots of little snacks then would suggest you order a meal instead. We also had a coffee each rad was very nice. Service whilst very friendly was a little... More

We visited a few cellar door over a long weekend and we voted (4 adults, child free long weekend) that this was our favorite. Driving up we had our doubts (felt more in the middle of suburbia than many others and didn't have the breathtaking surroundings like some) but the building and setting were gorgeous and the lady who did...

It was the first time we went to try some wines. The atmosphere was very relaxed and there was no pressure. I thought it would have been more expensive but we only paid $5 each to taste several wines. It was not really busy but enough people to create a cozy buzz. We even ended up buying some bottles. It... More

From the moment we walked through the door until we left we had an enjoyable time. The staff were just amazing and friendly. Food beautiful, great suggestions of wine. These people certainly know what they are doing/talking about. Fabulous time, would definitely recommend and will most certainly return when next back in the area.
