I love this place because it not only has the best persecco but there is a deli, pizza oven, and truffle shop. The atmosphere is beautiful. A must go to winery.

Matt is an awesome host who knows the wines and can articulate their properties in a very simple but yet knowledgeable way. We enjoyed the wines very much as well as the overall atmosphere and amenities that we became wine club members!!

Felt like we were in a southern Italy town square. Food was delicious, three tenors a treat. Bought some of the delicious prosciutto to take home. Their wines are good, the prosecco from Italy especially good. A wonderful way to spend a summer weekend afternoon.

From the first moment on the premises, we were welcomed and directed about the layout of the amenities here. The food was fine and we ended up buying some wine for delivery back home.

Depending on the number of wines you sample and the amount of time you interact with everyone, I would estimate approximately one hour, maybe an hour and a half. Regardless, you will enjoy your time there.
