Hello Chris, I am sorry to hear that your experience was not as you expected. With more than 30 wines to choose from it is apparent that we failed in helping you select wines that you would like. As you mentioned, we rushed you through...More

Very nice winery. The people are so nice and helpful. Wine is ok. Bought two bottles of the Riesling. Couldn't believe how in expensive the tasting was, $3 for 6 choices. I am used to $15 PLUS living on Long Island

I played designated driver for Wifey while visiting Bear Pond. She had a wine flight, which came with about 6 samples. I did "sneak" a few sips, and enjoyed their Chardonnay the most. We enjoyed it.

The young employees were very nice, but the wine was terrible. I really wanted to like it, as buying local is important to me.
