I know this winery's infomation from Japanese TV program. I drived from midtown-NewYorkCity,it was not so difficult to get there,because of good car-navigation sisystem. A few dollars tasing fee must be required , but when you buy wines after tasting,will be discount.

Love the stories behind the Brotherhood Winery. Short but interesting tour. Was there quite a few years back, and the new owners have brought the place up beautifully. Prices are very reasonable, selection is outstanding!!..Should have bought more, need to go back soon!!..

I must admit that Brotherhood winery was a bit of a disappointment. We signed up for the tour which costs $10 per person (includes a tasting). The vast majority of the tour consisted of our tour guide telling us about the history of the winery...More

We ended our trip with a visit to Brotherhood and what a wonderful note to end it with. The tour was very informative, rich in history - both American and wine. Wine tasting follows the tour and it just brings the whole experience together. Lots...More

I'm a little late to the game, but if you are interested in a bed and breakfast, I LOVE the Dominion House B&B. It's about a 10 minute drive away. I go every year!
