Building needs work, server was not well-versed in wines being sold. Nice view, but overall unimpressive.

Thankfully, this was my first stop on the Wine & Cheese Event Sunday. The hilly dirt road drive would not have been so good to take if at the end of the day, lol. Nice grilled cheese when greeted for event.

The scenic view great. The lady doing the wine tasting was nice. The winery itself wasn't that great. Small gift shop in the tasting area and a bigger room for events. Bought two bottles of wine to go.

Ok place with plenty of parking. A little less of most ambiance and niceties. And, by the way, count your change.

Stopped for a quick visit. Gentleman helping us was fun and very animated. Very helpful. Beautiful views from the back porch and lawn area. Nice to sit and relax.
