The nice folks here offer smaller-production, single vineyard, and harder-to-find wines for tasting, not common varieties readily accessible in stores. This makes wine-tasting more rewarding...More

This winery offers free tastings and you choose which ones you want to try... up to eight... and very generous tastings. The selection includes some reserve style wines. We loved them and bought lots!

The Cellar Door is quite attractive but not the best in the region but the wines are certainly up there so definitely worth a visit.
