They have Chardonnays you wouldn’t expect. It too sweet, not too dry. Great place to hang out with some friends, eat some snacks, have a glass or 6.

We stopped in for wine tasting. It is small and quaint, not fancy at all. But the wines are great. We did not eat, but we did buy some bottles of wine. Very friendly staff that explains every wine you are tasting
