We had never been here and made a special detour to come, arrived at 5:23 on a Saturday, and posted hours were that the winery was open til 6:00. There were 2 cars in the parking lot, so we went up and the doors were locked. We knocked. No Answer. We started back toward our car and a woman came out and asked what we needed. We wanted to try some of your wines, we said. Were you wanting to buy some? she responded. I said, we want to taste some and see, like people do at wineries. She said, Well we haven't been busy so we closed early. I said, We came out here because your posted hours are until 6:00. Well, I guess you can come in then, she said.
So.....not very encouraging, but I loved the look of the place, and I am always open to trying new wines and yes . . . I usually buy at least one bottle.
Inside there are 2 people at the bar. The woman behind it looks at us and says sharply, Can I help you? No smile, no welcome. I said, We're here for a wine tasting.
Then the woman who brought us in told them, They are going to spend some money.
Then the man looked purposefully at his watch and said, Well, we close in a little bit.
Wow. I finally had enough of the rudeness, and I said, Okay, never mind. And my boyfriend and I walked out.
That was my experience of this winery. I am sorry if these workers/owners, whoever they were, were having a bad day, but this is not the way you run a business. I have never felt so unwelcome at a business that is designed to BRING PEOPLE IN. I can see if it was 5 minutes til closing that they might not be as happy to see us. But there was a full 30 minutes before their closing time.
I don't care how good the wines here might be--and I will never know--but I DO NOT recommend it.
