Very small winery off the beaten path. They import the grapes for their wine and really focus on the ciders which were excellent. We ended up buying a case. They also have a mead that is very good.

You also cannot leave the place without purchasing their apple cider donuts. If you like to hike they have hiking trails and cross country skiing the the winter.

The owner has one of the best products I've had in a long time. Best Cider Doughnuts EVER!! Good wine and really good cider. My only complaint is parking. You're either on the grass or on the steep hill. Not easy for someone handicapped or just someone who can't clime a steep hill. Other than that's one of my favorite orchards.

Love going to this winery! We had my daughters bridal shower here and it was a wonderful event. Of course the wine was great, the food fabulous especially the burgers. Fun at the bonfire toasting huge marshmallows for smors!

Great time

First people there on a rainy day. Wines were just taken out of cold storage so hadn't had a chance to breathe. Advertising is a bit misleading as only your first sample free and the next five are a dollar a piece which isn't bad but not free.. Friendly people, decent setting - great place I can imagine in the winter coming in from skiing to sit in front of the fire but this time of year it needed a little something to make it a little bit more inviting. Overall I enjoyed the experience.

Super great location and very welcoming spot. If you've never had apple wine, you must try this. I recommend the ice wine and the Johnny mash cider.
