We were in the area so thought we would check it out. I was expecting mostly sweet wines, but we really enjoyed their 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. We sat on the front porch looking out at the vineyard, and also got to see part of the acrobatic air show from the Transportation Museum down the street. It was perfect.

Gorgeous house and gardens, very relaxing environment. This was low key and friendly, no trace of snobbery at all. They have an unoaked chardonnay which is lovely for those of use who don't usually like chardonnay's buttery oak flavor. So we bought two bottles of that and a bottle of mead which I'll save for winter. They also sell some... More

A wonderful experience being served our tasting selections sitting in the beautiful gardens. We opted for the garden in the back, but the front porch with a view of Rockland harbor would have been wonderful as well.

We went for the wine tasting. 4 choices for only $3.00. Set in a beautiful newer mansion on a hilltop overlooking the ocean in the distance. After our tasting we took advantage of a glass of wine for $5.00 with choice of soft cheese and crackers which was served to us on the beautiful front porch with rocking chairs. We... More

The vineyard is located on a small farm just outside of Rockland. Wine tastings are in the beautiful home. The was wonderful and Holly gave us a tour of the vineyard and barn area and gave us a fascinating history of the resident goats. I recommend the Rosa Rugosa.

We drove up to a gorgeous farm estate. The tasting rooms were spacious, and the staff were friendly. Plenty of wines to taste though unfortunately no tastings were available of the wine with the grapes they grow on-site.
