Highly recommend a stop at this winery if you're traveling in the area. It has excellent wines and is a beautiful, well kept vineyard and buildings. Reminded me of the wineries I had visited in Napa Valley years ago.

I think the Flying Leap was the most expensive place to do wine tasting. They wouldn’t letus just taste red wine. They made us do white wine tasting too. Customer service wasn’t great. . I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. Very disappointed.More

WInes and people were very nice. Tasting price was almost double everywhere else but no noticeable value for that extra cost. One of the larger operations in the area. Worth a trip.More

Thanks for the feedback. Our tasting fee is $12.99, which includes a minimum of 7 x 1oz samples of wine. This is very comparable to a glass of premium wine at any restaurant setting in our or most other markets. If a customer purchases a...More
