This used to be a GREAT winery. Then they stopped making wine and sold others' wine. Then a few years ago they stopped doing that. Now just a venue that you can rent for parties or receptions, etc. The management there is really off. I...More

We were looking forward to an evening of wine tasting with family and friends but we went by and they were closed on a Saturday @ 7pm. I thought the website said they were open until 9pm.

We walked into a practically empty tasting room, however, no-one greeted us. We picked up the wine menu from the counter to review but was not addressed from the staff that were walking around behind the bar. Finally a waitress stopped and asked if she...More
