Stopped in for a wine tasting and pleasantly surprised. The host was very good knew his product. The wines for the most part were good and we actually walked out with two bottles. A very nice stop.

We spent a few hours at this lovely winery. Not only were the wines appealing, the server was friendly, personable, and professional. She poured our glasses of wine, chatting with us about each bottle. The setting is lovely. A gem outside Cooperstown.

Tasting of all wines costs $6 but if you buy a bottle of wine its free. Server was very knowledgable and nice. Wines are on the drier side for those who like dry wines.

The wines are very good and they offer a nice assortment. My husband and I have been there twice and we have left with multiple bottles both times. We are looking forward to going back. The staff is really nice and knowledgeable about wine.
