Went with my mother in law and sister in law. Had wine sampling and the cheese board is great. Limited indoor seating. Outside is a turtle pond. We had a good time.

The food selection was good. We enjoyed our sandwiches and loved the wine sampling. Relaxing place to spend the afternoon. Will be back soon.

We were here for a business luncheon with the Bonarrigo's. Perfect ambiance, food and wines. I recommend the Gorgonzola stuffed chicken and the wild salad greens. The flambe' desserts are out of this world as well! Do take time to schedule a delightful tour throughout the winery. It is well worth it! You'll want to sample some of their wonderful... More

We went to visit Alex at school and took hime here. The sunroom overlooks the vineyards which are beautiful. The French toast tableside was a treat for him. We also had a delicious milestone soup, panic crusted brie with raspberry chipotle and the Vermonter (turkey sandwich). Everything was tasty and Luke was a great waiter.

This is a vineyard, winery, and a Bed & Breakfast location with a nice restaurant. Before dinner, stop by the gift shop next door and sample some wines and select one you might want with dinner. After dinner, you can pick up some bottles of wine to take home. Their meals, while pricey, are a showpiece. Presented well, and wonderfully... More

This property is beautiful! We did it all while we were there. We visited the gift shop and did some wine tasting at the wine bar. The restaurant staff is very courteous and they have great customer service. The manager at this location is Mason Crowson and he went above and beyond to ensure we had a very pleasant experience...

Had dinner with another couple at the Vintage House. The fish specials are always excellent and tonight was no exception. Also, as usual the service was very good. Pace was liesurely and allowed us to really enjoy each course without feeling rushed. If you haven't been here in awhile, you should really try it again. You won't be disappointed. One... More

We experienced a nicely seared Grouper with lemon cous cous and fresh baby vegetables (zucchini, squash and carrots). Corrin and Jessica took expert care of us ... From bread service to presenting the wine for tasting to making sure we had all we needed during our meal.

My party went in here for lunch on a Thursday. We called ahead to make sure they could seat us. The hostess made it sound like they were busy and pushed us back 15 minutes. When we arrived 30 minutes before that time, there was only 1 table sat. Why the pushed back time? However, the food is very good... More
