Went for memorial day weekend. Had a good visit and enjoyed the wine tasting. Liked some of the other nearby wineries better but cute labels. Bought 2 wines.

Great Reds and nicely run by vineyard. Great Mac N Cheese served for Wine & Cheese Event. Nice service at the tasting counter. Will visit again.

We had been here once years ago, but bypassed it for years afterward. I’m not sure why. This is a sister winery to goose watch and Swedish Hill, and is on par with both. We’ll be back again next year!
