This place was a major turn off mostly due to the apathy of our server. She spent more time talking with one of her co-workers than taking the time to explain the wines we were sampling. If this was a
complimentary tasting, that's one thing but when you're charged at least $15 a head, an expectation of good service is reasonable. Wine tasting is an experience and this experience was mediocre.

Definitely worth a visit. Small vinery in a gorgeous building. Tasting was at the right pace and very good.

Fun little spot to try out. The wines were good, the place was very nice, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I"d definitely recommend for those who like white wines or pinot noir. It was fun the Pinot Gris too!

We have visited this tasting room two years in a row and have enjoyed the wine and learned more each visit. The tastings are not only educational they are generous. On both visits we were treated to extra pours in order to compare and teach. The staff is very friendly and eager to share their knowledge without being "uppity". The gardens are also beautiful and provide a nice photo opportunity. We enjoy these wines at home regularly.

$20 per person is a lot to spend on wine that is returned to the "recovery" vehicle in 4 of the 5 tastings. Additionally, we were allowed to cool our heels at the tasting bar whilst a small party tasted and purchased some very expensive wines. There is no gift shop to speak of, but a lovely outdoor sitting area where you could - if you wanted to serve yourself - sip your vino. As a matter of fact, most of those seated at the outdoor tables WERE serving themselves whilst the big-spenders were treated to exemplary service. Hmmm. Did we not look as if we had money in our pockets also?? No tours available. Save your money.
