My wife and I stopped in over the Labor Day weekend and participated in the wine tasting that was offered. Having stopped at several other vineyards in the area, I was taken aback at the condescending attitude on display by the two gentlemen leading the tasting sessions.
My wife and I arrived after the second sampling of a session, so while browsing in the store, I listened to the various descriptions and stories behind the wines. I thought I was misunderstanding or not hearing the person at first because I thought he was coming across as a bit of a snob, but upon closer attention, my first impression was correct. I chalked it up to maybe someone having an off day or even shift, but when our tasting started, it was the same thing with the gentleman leading our tasting.
Throughout the entire sampling, which consisted of 7 wines, I felt that I was being talked down to the entire time. In addition, due to the large number of people we had in our sampling group (we were formed in to a horseshoe shape out on the main floor instead of at the tasting station), the poor assistant was doing her best to keep up with everyone and the leader did nothing to offer to help her with the pours.
The only reason I had stayed was that the wines were good and my wife wanted to purchase a few of them. Once the official tasting was over, we asked the assistant (Annika) if we could sample one other one that my wife really wanted to try. She graciously gave us each a pour and asked us if there were any others we wished to try. It was only through her actions that we did wind up purchasing a number of bottles.
If you like the wine here and know what you want, go ahead and just stop in to buy it. if you are traveling around and just come across this vineyard and think it would be a nice way to spend 30 minutes or so, I'd recommend to keep on going unless you like to be talked down to.
