We enjoyed this winery tour mostly for the local information we received by our guide. The historic home is beautiful and you can rent a room here.

Stopped in on a tour of wineries. Tried a couple different wines that were all nice, but really enjoyed the blackberry red wine the most. Very nice backyard to sit and enjoy your wine.
