Located on a busy road, but is far enough back that it doesn't interfere with your enjoyment. The tasting room is small, but there are table and chairs downstairs and upstairs, on a balcony, and in the garden/patio. The building has a cozy cottage feeling...More

Bottom line: Over 13 wines made up their tasting which was inexpensive ($5). Cute place and the wines are pretty good! Stopped here after we read about them on Trip Advisor. We found it to be a nice tasting experience. Really enjoyed the Chardonel (and...More

Great wine, interesting location, this is the first wine I ever visited in my life. I first came here in May 2007 when I used to live in Richmond. Glad they still have music every Friday.
