This is a small winery that has both fine wines and friendly people. We attended their Chocolate and Champagne Valentine's event. The winery itself is unimpressive. The tasting room is clean but utilitarian. But the quality of the wine and the commitment of the owners more than made up for the lack of interior design. The tasting featured a nice mix of reds and whites including an impressively buttery chardonnay, as well as seyval blanc, vidal blanc, cayuga white, riesling, vin rouge, cabernet franc, and a sparkling wine. These were served with some tasty finger food including a cheese crostini, meatball, cheesecake and a juicy chocolate dipped strawberry. After the tasting, the owner guided a tour of the cellar with some additional tastings. It was obvious from his presentation that this is truly a labor of love and he shared information about the wine making process with reminiscences of his late French wife. The fee for this event was a very reasonable $11. and included the tasting, tour and a complimentary branded flute filled with assorted chocolates.
We enjoyed our visit. The wines were delicious and the French influence apparent. They may be purchased at the tasting room or by calling the winery. The tour was informative and sure to delight oenophiles and francophiles alike.
