We have been to many wine tastings at many various wineries in several states. It is one of the things we enjoy to do as we travel. This was the most disappointing of any we have done. We were not interested in the tour and they seemed very unhappy that we just wanted the tasting. This has never been an issue at any other winery we have ever visited. I am having some foot and knee issues and did not want to do a lot of walking or standing but was encouraged to take the tour. They showed us a movie, a history of the winery, where we sat, and it was informative. Then we went into 2 other rooms, where we had to stand for the presentation about how wines are made or bottled. The gentleman who demonstrated how sparkling wine was bottled was very amusing. Finally we were brought to a room for a tasting. It was "free" and they chose what wines to let us taste but the amount that we were given was barely a splash, in the bottom of the glass. Definitely not enough to really taste the wine or decide if you like it or not. We would rather pay for a tasting and choose about 5 wines to taste, as we have at other wineries we have been to. The lady conducting the tour seemed outwardly friendly but she had an edge of "nasty". My husband was interested in a particular wine and asked about it. She merely gave him a history of the wine and never offered a taste or told him, as we would have expected, that it unfortunately was not available, at this time.
We would not go back to this winery, nor recommend it to anyone. If you like their wine, simply go buy it somewhere and skip the tasting.
