This was the final Stop on our wine tour. We stopped here for dinner in their private room. It was the perfect ending to a great day. We had beer and wine with a three course dinner in their large private catering room.

It was a fluke when I first walked through the door a couple years ago, and only travel out east when I want to spoil myself. Was last there 25 Sep 16. As always awesome!
