The winery is a brightly lit store with a small tasting area in the back. The wines are very fruity and not complex at all. If you like that kind of wine this is your place.

I enjoyed going here for the wine. However, do not go with a lot of motorcyclists to the restaurant. You will not be welcome.

The lunch menu is on their website. The food is always terrific and paring with their wines is great fun.
