I found the Travelzoo certificate and thought it would be something fun to do. It was! Driving south on I-83 from PA, we got off the interstate early and took some beautiful back roads to the winery.
I thought the tasting room was very cozy. It is dusty, which I think is kind of weird and some skylights in the roof would really brighten the place up, but I liked the atmosphere. It wasn't too busy when we arrived so we had no problem getting a "server" to walk us thru our selections. Brenda was a lot of fun to talk and joke with.
Our cheese plate had nice size chunks/slices of brie, parmesan, asiago and a figgy goat cheese. How can you go wrong with wine and cheese I ask you?
I tried all their reds. I'm accustomed to PA wines which generally are very sweet. And I thought this winery had more balance in their wines. My personal favorites were the Marisa which was their sweetest red and their Cabernet which had the most incredible fresh, jammy, fruity smell. Just delicious. We had quite a bit of cheese left over after the 8-tastings we each had, so my bf bought a glass of wine and we sat outside with their border collie and enjoyed a gorgeous autumn day.
When it was time to check out I got my free bottle of wine. I could have had their Lorenzo Reserve, but I preferred the Cab, and since the Cab was cheaper, they had no problem switching it for me. We ended up buying a bottle of the Marisa, the Marisa Dolce and the Cab. We really enjoyed our visit and we'll go back in the spring when the buds are blooming on the back roads of Carroll County.
