The wine was good and we had great customer service!! The $5 tasting fee provided us with enough samples to decide what to buy.

We have visited this winery multiple times. I enjoy their red wines, not too sweet and not too dry. They have a food truck with wood fired pizzas in the summertime. Great to enjoy a glass of wine and a pizza. Great stop.
