We were told about this vineyard but some guests in the resort we are staying in and they had a representative at an event there. I have been to several wine tastings in the past and the Crosskey was the least friendly. The grounds are beautiful especially this time of year. I was eager to learn about the vineyard and the grounds. Well I was disappointed when I was made to feel as though we were imposing on the server and the only thing she talked to us about was the wine she poured for us. We were given a "tasting sheet" which said exactly what she said to us, so I guess we were lucky she spoke to us at all.
She spent more time telling a co-worker she had other things to do in the kitchen and needed him to finish our tasting. He ignored her and once we finished our last wine she was gone. Another couple walked in while she was walking away and as she walked away she told them to decide which tasting they wanted and she would be back. They had no idea that there were different tasting so I showed then the bulletin board that displayed the different ones and explained them.
Amazingly we did decide to purchase some wine and when she returned she cashed us out not unlike a cashier at Walmart would. I don't know if they were short handed (during the busy season?)or if this is the way they do business, but with all of the other vineyards in the area I would try a different one.
