“Don't miss 868 Estate Winery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had an excellent experience at 868 with a group of friends. Even took a hike up the hill to the top of the estate which sits at 868 foot elevation - hence the name of the winery. The tasting room is roomy and well-appointed, and the grounds are gorgeous, with lots of the original farm buildings incorporated into the landscaping.

Would also recommend the Grandale restaurant which is part of the winery. Had a wonderful dinner next to a huge, cozy wood-burning fireplace.

“A new winery with lots of promise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stopped into this winery for a tasting and found out they opened earlier this year. Sometimes this can be a bad thing, since that means their wines are very young. Not the case for 868! We enjoyed their wines and their pourers were friendly and knowledgeable. We look forward to stopping in again when we're up that way.

“Great Vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This place was the ticket to a wonderful afternoon of wine tasting. Our host, Kyra was just great - knowledgeable, personable and humorous too. The grounds are fabulous, there's a cute little restaurant and the wine tasting area is modern and bright. Just great. There are lots of choices and I would highly recommend this one.
