The stop to Shaw Vineyard was one of our first during the trip, and one of our least favorite stops. The tasting room is a basic wooden building...no problem with that. However, the fee is $5.00, with no souvenir wine glasses provided or even available for purchase. The server was friendly but was doing other things during our tasting. The vintner was sitting in the room when we arrived, and we had to ask to find out who he was. While he answered direct questions, he was not friendly and offered no information about the vineyard, grapes or the wines. That was disappointing; he was sitting in the room so we thought it would be a good chance to learn about his vineyard. Wrong; it was just uncomfortable after we asked questions and he volunteered to information on his company or wine making process. The wines were good, and we did purchase a bottle. However, there were other Vineyards that provided a better experience and that had better wines. We look not only for good wine but a good tasting experinece, and were disappointed.
