Very unique tasting room in an old school right off the main road into town. The wines are very good and the building is very cool. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Good first stop on your way into town.

The old schoolhouse venue is beautifully restored. The staff are very helpful and not at all pushy. Have been a wine club member for many years and look forward to every release. We have NEVER been disappointed. I cannot say that about any other winery!...More
