Thank you so much! We hope you can come back to see us. The lineup is always changing depending on what is in stock and sometimes we even have a couple dry ones. We appreciate your business and we are glad you enjoyed our farm.

Wines are not that good. Not a friendly place! Owners were there and didn't have anything to say to customers who are supporting your business! We would skip this winery! I wouldn't call it a winery, you decide!More

Thank you so much! You obviously went home with at least a bottle because we waive the $5 tasting fee when you make a bottle purchase. Enjoy! Please visit again as our tasting lineup is always changing. Thanks for taking time to write a review.

I am not generally a wine drinker but the fact that all of their wines were made from fruits other than grapes was definitively a plus. We loved most of the wines we sampled and came home with three bottles - raspberry, cherry & blackberry....More
