Besides the beautiful grounds/tasting room, you can sit with the actual wine maker/owner (Ed DeMello) & enjoy his fine wines. Interesting Ed's an engineer turned wine marker who learn the trade by trial/error. You wouldn't know it from the quality of the wines which were...More

Yes, it's a vineyard, with many excellent wines. But the grounds are lovely and there is plenty of room for kids to run and play. Live music as well.
