The hostess was attentive at the best degree possible. We really enjoyed our stop here. We sat right in front of the Pinot noir harvest and the mountains.

We had a great tour of the winery, learning about their grapes, harvesting, aging and bottling. We then had a taste of more than enough wines. We liked the Envoy wine the best, were a little disappointed with the Spy Valley labeled wines considering the...More
