The wine here is unfiltered, but good. They have a huge local following that comes to refill their wine jugs in the European tradition. Knowledgeable staff. Best Sangiovase we have ever tried, try it yourself, you'll take a couple home.

Hats off to the staff and wine maker! Impressive grounds with a pond and nice picnic tables offer a sublime setting. The tasting room is well done and the wine... wow! Unique for a wine country that specializes in that concept.
