The Manning family (Kief and his parents) are always very welcoming. In addition to a great wine product, they also offer a variety of cooking spices, salses, spices, cheese, meats and crackers. They also have a nice patio for your picnic.

(On Sundays, a caterer offers an omelet bar on the patio.)

As with all area vineyards, the price of tastings (and bottles) have really jumped. Don't forget that after you buy a glass at the first winery stop, the other wineries will provide a discount tasting fee when you bring that glass in.

Always enjoy a stop at one of my favorite wineries. Always feel like I'm visiting with old friends. Watch for fun events and enjoy Kief's fine cooking. Be sure to visit the special animals on sight.
