This was the last of three wineries and our guide kept it that way because he recommended we eat there. A good choice. We had met a female vintner who really knew her stuff. They specialized in pizzas, but had some other unique items.

The combination of French and Italian chefs has resulted in an outstanding dining experience! The squid and Porcini Risotto were just amazing and as always the wines were a treat! Well done !! Just super!!

Very sorry about thw prochutto being out that day and the communication. I am sure that the Chef would not have done this intentionally as he prides himself on sourcing real whole italian Prochutto and slicing it to order. Regards David
