First stop on our "winery tour." Because of roadwork, was hard to get to, but we persisted. Beth was amazing, very knowledgeable and suffered through our horrible jokes while teaching us a little more about wines (ie. what makes a Meritage). Beautiful location and delicious...More

The setting is lovely. The wine was the best we had of the 3 places we visited. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. We bought several bottles as we really enjoyed their New York wines.
