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

We attended the MB show on the lawn at Shelton for our 3rd year in a row. We love this venue. It’s so relaxing hanging under the trees & sipping wine! 🍷 Shelton is a gorgeous facility! (And the wine is pretty good too!) πŸ˜‰

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