Just by chance we came across this winery. A large selection of wines, prices reasonable. The tasting gallery is somewhat small. Staff were knowledgeable about their craft.

We visited here while we were in the area. Our host was very knowledgeable and allowed us to take our time and there were plenty of choices to taste. The tasting is free. Really enjoyed the Pinot Gris which is a single vineyard wine.
