the drive is pretty and the sugar leaf maple is always gorgeous. The wine is better thanaverage but the pours for the tastings are barely a full swallow. They have the smallest pours of any vineyard we have been too. It isn't a fancy venue but it is fun on a sunny afternoon to make the drive there and get a bottle of wine after tasting.

I recently bought a deal for Sugarleaf through Travel Zoo. As a part of the deal, the winery advertised that we could take home two bottles of wine(up to $20 each). When we showed up, they limited our choices down to their two cheapest bottles of white wine, both were well below the $20 priceline. There was a $20 bottle of white wine(viognier) that I did like but they refused to let us take 2 bottles of that home.
When I brought up the fact about the terms of the deal and how it was false advertisement to write that we could pick our wine and then force two poor tasting wines on us, the lady just made a comment about how that was what the winery owner wanted. They made no attempt to resolve the issue but said that they would welcome our review, well here it is. I even attempted to bargain with them and give up our "$40 wine credit" for one bottle of red wine at $25, still no buge.
I believe if a merchant is going to offer a deal on Travel Zoo, Groupon or even the worest company aka Living Social, they should honor that committment in said deal. Also beware that their tasting room is over run by hundreds of stink bugs and the cellar where bathroom is located is infested with tons of fruit flies. I have been to a lot of wineries and never seen such an infestation. Kind of makes you wonder what goes into the wine, maybe more protein????
