This is a must go to place if you are ever in the Canandaigua area.
On the main floor, there is a tasting room that serves, white, red, desert liquors and beer flights. The beer flight of five different beers cost $7.00 and the dry red wine flight of five cost $8.00.
There is a store that has various wine accessories you can buy along with dipping sauces, jams & jellies (some are out for samples) and various wine books.
Also on the main floor is a teaching kitchen. There are classes that have been scheduled for the year and you can sign up to attend right up until the start of the class if there is room.
The main floor also has a teaching room. The day we attended there was a class happening on what to pair with Riesling. The class had already started or we would have gone.
There is a customer service counter with two very young ladies that didn't welcome us when we walked in. I approached the to inquire on what was what and were things were. Pleasant but probably too young to be sitting there only because there is a lack of awareness to what is happening around them.
The entire upstairs is home to the Bistro and bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Happy Hour was from 5-7 PM and they offered $2.00 every glass of wine and $1.00 glasses of beer. You can sit outside overlooking the lake or inside. We choose to sit outside and it was awesome because it overlooked the marina. We sat and watched the boats, jet skis and kayaks and was a good setting for people watching.
The food was very good. While we did not have a full meal, we had two appetizers (the meat & various cheese trays and the arancini with our wine after our wine tasting event. It's hard to offer an opinion on the food when the only thing we had was apps. The service was good, a bit slow at times but there was only one server for a lot of people.
My only regret for this place is that we didn't get to attend a class. This was a great way to spend our afternoon and we made the most out of what was there and we had a great time.
