We wanted to do something fun for a bridal shower where both young and old could kick up their heels a little. We toured Sea Cider, Symphony and Muse Winery. I was very pleasantly surprised with the Symphony winery as they were with us in our crazy hats.
We had the flight in the garden with a lovely description of each wine. I am pretty picky but have to say they were all above average. I love the ortegas the best as the wine is local to our island and perfect summer sipping. We were encouraged to help ourselves to a selection of local nibblies and we went for a fresh baguette, Natural pastures cheeses with fresh cucumbers and giant blueberries. The setting was simply beautiful with many plantings and flowers overlooking a terraced, viney view towards the sea. Bottles were ordered and a delectable time was had. We laughed and relaxed and I will be back again. Highly recommended for out of town guests or date night.

This small family run winery is a treat to visit. We were warmly greeted by Pat(?) and invited us to a few tastings. The setting is very nice, with tables and chairs set up on the lawn overlooking the chestnut trees and vineyard. We very much liked their barrelled Pino Gris; the Rose was also very good too. They also sell an assortment of chutneys, wine jellies, and jams/preserves. They encourage you to walk the property and to enjoy the views with a glass of wine and some of the plate items they offer: tomatoes, fruits and cheese. Should you purchase a bottle or two they will provide you a chilled bottle for you to open and enjoy at one of the tanless in the garden; no corkage fee. A wonderful way to spend some time.

This place is outstanding in every way. We bought many bottles of wine because it's well-priced as well as being excellent. Even pure visiting family from San Francisco was impressed with the quality.

Loved our experience with this little winery. We walked in and were welcomed and told that someone would be with us right away. Worked out wonderfully as we were able to take in the views and the fact that this winery has done a little extra to allow visitors to enjoy not only the wines and scenery but also some local cheeses,meats etc. It is a simple , lovely set up. Grab a picnic basket and fill it with cheese, local fruit and veggies and order some fresh hot from the oven bread and find a spot at one of the many tables. It was hard to leave on such a beautiful day. Not going to say which wines we bought as tastes vary BUT we got a coupon from them when we purchased our mixed case for a discount off our next one! Great idea! Tasty wines and perfect incentive to return!

The couple who owns this four acre vineyard has a gem of place. The grounds are well tended and beautiful. Their wines are worth tasting and buying. I particularly like the rose - dry, full bodied, fruity, great with cheese! You can walk the vineyard, too or simply sit inside or outdoor in their well landscaped area. They have food you can purchase and put together an nice light lunch. Or you can to to few surrounding farms, pick your own berries, buy some cheese and bread and head to the winery for nice time.

Hi Raymond. Thanks for the taking the time to write! Agree the Pinot Noir Rose is dry but juicy! Lovely on a hot day and indeed great with our local cheeses from the deli - and the patios are a great place to do that. Just a note though on picnics - we ask that folks don't bring in their own picnic items as we have a full deli at the winery (although celebratory cakes welcome anytime!). Our pricing is often the same as the markets/deli's and grocery stores for these local items and the selection is great! There are some wineries/cidieries nearby that do allow you to bring in your own picnics - but its best perhaps to check with them directly. Thanks again
