Peaks of Otter Winery is somewhat hidden -- if you don't know you're looking for it, I can't imagine you'd just randomly stumble across it. Our toddler was napping, so we wanted to find some way to pass the time while she slept -- and we ended up at the Winery. However, we were very pleased with our experience there!
A tasting is free if you bring your own glass, or you can purchase one of theirs for $3, which was what we chose to do. The girl informed us then that the tasting is for "Thirty-five wines, but if that's too many, we'll just hit the highlights." The tastings are small servings, but just keep that in mind -- thirty-five wines! -- when you go! However, the farm itself is a large size, so after we did our tasting, we did explore the barn in which they serve you, as well as the farm behind the building. They have an assortment of animals that you can visit, so it's great if you have little ones with you, or are just looking to burn off some of the wine before getting back into the car.
As far as their wines go, the majority are more of a novelty thing than anything. Kiss the Devil, for example, I'm sure would make a great chili -- but to buy an entire bottle seemed wasteful to me, since I'd never use the entire thing for meals before it would go badly. I wish they sold that one in a smaller bottle, I would have been all over that! Our favorite was an off-dry apple wine; simple and crisp, so delicious. All the wines we tasted were good, but there were many that I know I couldn't drink a full glass of, let alone split a bottle. They are on the sweeter side, as far as wines go, but they have a knack for delivering good taste for a reasonable price!
All in all, if you're in the area and like to taste wines, I highly suggest POA. It was a great experience and we had a lot of fun!
