Visited Obsidian for a wine tasting and glad we chose it. The wines were delicious and each one came with a fresh explanation which was fun and interesting. We were also given cheese, crackers and olives which was the icing on the cake. Thanks guys...More

A good lineup of whites and reds. Cab Sav and Syrah. Full bodied and intense flavours. Good on the nose. Walked away with a couple of bottles. Good for the next winter. A most helpful host. Wine sales only.
