We had received many good reports about this winery. But our cellardoor experience was no good.
They ask you to donate 5 dollars to "the children of Africa"or something if you want to taste all the wine on their tasting list. First, I don't like people TELLING me to donate. Second, I do not like excuses(for that 5 dollar fee, which I wouldn't mind if it's called "a fee" not "a donation", it's not that I'm against humanity or anything, telling people they should donate is wrong. Would had been good was they could mention that they do charity and they donate. And I'm sure when they are donating, they are not going to say here is the money from people came in for wine tasting at our cellardoor and each of them donated 5 dollars).
Then we became the bad people on earth who wouldn't "donate" to the children of Africa and stuff, and would only be allowed to taste a few wine from the list as a punishment.
The service was not good (possibly because of us being selfish), the person greeted us served the first wine that we chose from the list, and disappeared. All other staff behind the bar managed to avoid eye contact with us while we were waiting there with our glasses empty for the next 10/15 mins (possibly because we're too evil).
Then we just left. Being not donatable will limit your eligibity of being a satisfied customer.
