Came here on a wine tour, rude service, refused to open a bottle of wine purchased there and are not licensed to do anything but taste. Not impressed, would rather mass produced eg jacobs creek

We were not charged for the wine tasting. It was one of our favorites and sorry we ran out of time to make a second trip there. The wines were very good!
