Visited last summer, never reviewed. Stopped for a wine tasting and spent some quality time there as the person serving me was very knowledgeable and friendly. Ended up buying some of their Rieslings and recommend.

Nice tasting room, nice outdoor deck. Favorite was RNC Viridescens, second was Merlot. Overpriced. Wasn't feeling the vibe of the place, but I can see why others would. Nothing special to us.
