Owner description: Beautiful vineyard featuring tours of the premisis and summertime concerts.

We had a great night at Harry Connick Jr. Everything was so organized and since we had reserved seats we got to use nice bathrooms, not port-o-potties. So worth the extra money. Parking is fairly inexpensive and easy to get in and out.

We had a picnic before the concert outside on their grounds. Arrived early enough to try and take a tour and try some wine, but it was crazy busy and the tours were pretty booked.

For a concert though, I would recommend and I liked that people stayed seated for the most part so everyone can just sit and enjoy.

Great show! We plan to come back next year!

These people sure know how to put on a show. Saw Gladys Knight last night and was surprised at how well organized everything was. Had reserved seating. Parking attendants were accommodating showing us where to park our motorcycle. security and seating personnel were pleasant. The next day went to a tasting and,thanks to gentlemen next to us, tried three awesome wines not on their selection, Mimi Chardonnay, Midsummer's Night white wine, and their Meritage red. Walked away with one of each. Truly appreciated the time spent explaining the wines we tasted. Would have purchased more of each, but unfortunately our space was limited, as well as Canadian laws for bringing back alcohol.

We were part of a tour group arranged by Princess Cruise Lines which visited this winery and one other. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. The wines were delicious, the tour guides were knowledgeable and the grounds were beautiful. It was a great addition to our trip, and if we were ever in the area again we would stop by.

Great winery tour, and a fantastic venue for a local concert on the lawn where they have different live concerts throughout the summer. We noticed an enormous tent where a concert was being prepared for the afternoon.

We also noticed several families picnicking on the lawns, just beautiful scenery and surrounding woods & waterscapes were very inviting.

We had a fun & informative tour guide, that left us wanting to sample every type of wine they produce. You will find it very informative as well as interesting to understand the various regions they are growing their grapes.

We ended up trying almost every wine they had for tasting, and ended up with wonderful Sparkling Wine we have never tried if not for the tasting. We were very pleased with our purchases of wine, and look forward to enjoying them in the near future.

Being from CA I have in the past "done the wine tour thing". We (DH and BIL) arrived just as a tour was beginning and decided to join. Out tour guide Dru was very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Ellen "brought up the rear" (us) and answered some of our questions. In the tasting room after the tour we tasted three wines and Dru continued to do a good job of educating us on nuances of wine tasting. Once in the wine shop/gift area we wandered around and were met by Ellen who saw us by the ice wine display. She told us about the wine (we didn't know what it was) and offered us an additional tasting.
I would say that if you're new to wine, take the tour. If not you can purchase a wine flight out in the tasting room adjacent to the gift shop. I believe they arrply your tasting fee to your purchase of wine.
