We exclusively produce sparkling wine using both the traditional method (bottle fermented) and cuve close (tank fermented) methods. L.

“A nice discovery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

This was a nice discovery! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and the wines well-crafted. The wines are somewhat on the crisp side and would be very good with food. Sadly, I live in Washington State and couldn't ship any bottles home as it's not legal. Too bad, my friends here will just have to take my word for it.

“Fun place to taste!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Good service, liked the crackers and dip with the two glasses (flight), fun experience. Would have been five stars but we were on plastic patio chairs.

“Best stop on the wine tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stopped here on a beautiful albeit blustery fall afternoon in Oct. Upon entering the tasting area we were immediately acknowledged by the L. Mawby staff. Engaging, knowledgable, friendly, original, and fun! The entire staff (Larry the owner and the beautiful young hostess behind the counter) was exceptional and extremely informative. Professional, intelligent and helpful...we left with a case and still have yet to find a favorite despite their best attempts at explaining and describing the subtleties of each bubbly. Must stop location if you're into sparkling wine (Champagne)!
