I love this winery! The Barrel Room has the prerequisite dim lighting and smells pleasantly of wet oak and wine. Rather than bellying up to the tasting bar, you're escorted to individual tasting stations where you perch on stools surrounding clever tables with wine cask bases. There you are greeted by an employee of the winery, who pours samples of the wines, tells you about what it is you're drinking and answers any questions you may have. You're then left to yourselves to enjoy and discuss and nibble on bread sticks before the next wine is poured. It's a wonderful, far more intimate and informative experience and the people working the tasting room genuinely seem to enjoy the product and their jobs. Did I also mention that the wines are good? Well worth the $15.00 tasting fee in my opinion.
