Did not have plans to stop for wine tasting, as we had our 2 kids with us. However, we decided to stop. Did sampling of 5 wines ($5), but free if you spend more than $20. Left with a bottle of wine. Nice staff.

This clean, bright tasting room is situated on the top of a hill that looks out on water in three directions. The wine is pretty darn good, too.

I'm really sorry about your experience, but we are absolutely a kid-friendly establishment! Families are in the area on vacation and we welcome them to stop by the tasting room as part of their day out on Old Mission Peninsula. At the heart of what we do is farming, and while some tasting rooms may seem like a bar, ours... More

Very modern winery. We loved the glass windows at the tasting bar. Awesome view. I would like to see a larger area to sit and enjoy a glass of wine but had a pleasant experience. The grounds are very well kept.

This place probably had the best view of all of the wineries we visited on the Mission Peninsula, but we couldn't sit outside and we had to stand at the bar for our tasting....I think they should consider putting some outdoor furniture.

Thank you for the suggestion! We'd love to put outdoor seating in, but with township and state laws, and limited space onsite right now, we don't have a good way to do it. It might be something we do in the future though, so stop back by! More

I love this place...our second time back, same gentlemen pouring for us. I love the fact that if you buy something they give you the $5 for your tasting back - that's how they all should be.
