Discovered this winery quite by accident, but enjoyed the experience. The tour was interesting, although the winery wasn't in operation. Tasted a variety of wines made from local berries, and enjoyed conversation with the hosts.

The tour of the winery was very informative. We were not fortunate enough to have the winery in operation when we visited, but the guide made the walk through quite interesting. The wines we tasted were so good that we went home with three bottles!
