Great wine tasting with a very friendly owner. Had no clue about wine, but they were still very nice and treated us friendly. Also very good cheese platter, enough for two people. It's nice to see how a dream came true. Worth visiting!

Thank you for visiting. Glad you enjoyed your cheese platter and were able to make a dream come true. Every time you taste wine you will build your knowledge of what you like. Enjoy exploring new wines and building your taste buds.

Great care and thought went into cultivating and creating these wines. Exceptional is the best description I can give them. They cellar up to 10 years before serving. Great hostess/ owner, Susan will take you thru the wine tasting. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
