About
We are a multi-generational family farm and winery, growing local fruits to ferment into regionally expressive wines. We focus on small batch red and white varietal wines, but also take pride in our line of blended wines that strive to make wine more approachable for everybody, and poke fun at the stuffy nature of wine and winemaking. Wine and hard cider available by the glass. Light snacks available for purchase. Indoor seating available by reservation. Walk ins handled on a first come, first served basis. Please visit our website for further details.

We researched and talked to a few locals who put this family winery as one of their favs and we were very pleased with our visit. This was our 2nd stop of 5 in the day and our favorite. The wines each had great aromas, body, and mostly soft. The grapes are grown local and by the family who runs it. One of the owners personally came out to check on us, ask about our choices and share plums she picked at their farm that morning for brandy they will make in the fall. What a wonderful, out of the way, small batch, and most importantly unpretentious winery. If you prefer to spend your money on locally produced and managed farms and families, this is the place to go

My wife and I stopped here on Sunday and we loved all of the detail and attention to social distancing. We came inside and selected 8 wines to taste/share...and then enjoyed them outside and not close to anyone. Fun way to spend some time and the old school building is super cool. We loved it!

This was our last stop and we went out with a bang. Supporting local wineries and small businesses. Left with 3 bottles of great bottles of wine! Would highly recommend even during Covid19 times this winery was accommodating and allowed us to mix our wine flight based on their wines versus a set of predetermined set of wines. Thank you Catlin for a memorable experience.

If I had the option to leave zero stars, I would. I was part of a wine tour and this was our last stop. When our group got off the bus, we were greeted by a less than friendly staff member who was EXTREMELY condescending!! She proceeded patronizing us the entire time we were there. She ended up telling us that out server did not feel comfortable with selling us additional drinks and that we were cut off. 🤨 We had done nothing wrong besides moving 2 chairs so our group of 6 could sit together. We were all having a great time laughing and talking! Do not waste your TIME or MONEY here! You will get much better treatment at the other winery’s.

Stoped in on Tuesday the 8th and used our winter flight pass. Steve was working behind bar, he could not have been any nicer or more helpful. Went back on the next day and Krista was working she also was terrific. We tried their ciders this time and they were to die for bought a cinnamon and a habanero -cherry cider we also loved the apple mulled wine they had in a warmer they sell in cooler months We had not been in several years and we were pleasantly surprised. The wines we tried we’re all good ,, ciders are out of this world and the staff couldn’t of been any better. If it had not been for the winter flight pass we probably would not have stop, So thanks for Participating in this great idea.

This old school house is transformed into a winery with plenty of selections for all tastes. Including some ciders. On a beautiful day there is plenty of outdoor seating. Inside is smaller but quaint. There are just some snack food items not real food. The flights are uniquely serves on a caring rack. Staff is helpful and friendly.

First let me say that this is one of my favorite wineries in TC. We were there a couple weekends ago. I wanted to purchase a few bottles to take home. I'm glad to see they are taking covid precautions, however we waiting in line for 40 minutes and were still probably looking at another 30+ minutes in line before we got to the door. There should be a separate line for those wishing to purchase and not wanting to taste. We ended up leaving empty handed because we did have reservations elsewhere and didn't want to be late.

This was my first time back to Peninsula Cellars in a few years. They have a very large menu and with only 4 pours in a flight it was very hard to choose. Their wines are better than they used to be, but it’s still not a favorite. The pours in the flight were large and it was too much wine for me for the first stop of the day. It’ll probably be a few years before I return.

This winery is in an old school house and most of their wines are named after school terms. It was a cute environment and the service was good. Plus, they have lots of cute wine gift type items to buy. It cost $5 for 5 wine tastings. I wasn't a huge fan of their wines, but that's just a personal preference. It was still a fun visit.

Our bus dropped our group off here, but the line was so long, we weren't able to try anything before we had to leave for our next stop. Would have been nice if they had a better set-up. The bus company said they didn't take reservations like the others did either. Not sure I would return for that reason. We were all disappointed.
