Early afternoon stop for tasting. Excellent dry wines. Our favorite: 2014 Dry Reisling. Sales/ Tasting staff knowledgeable & not pushy. A nice way to start our stay in the area. Short drive to the beautiful 1795 Acorn Inn.

Doesn't open till 11:00 so plan accordingly as will be busy from 11-12 with only 1 employee and late opening. Mostly dry wines so if you are looking for sweet wine tastings, might want to skip this one.
