Had a great experience - very informative and genuine knowledge about the winery history and interesting geographical facts. Not a high pressure sales person but someone who wanted to give us a great experience in the winery

Great wines, comfortable tasting room and wonderful and informative staff. I did not get to tour the winery, but have heard it's worth while.

We enjoyed our trip here so much. Chad, the owner, was amazingly informative and beyond kind to a curious non drinker. Beautiful scenery, a gorgeous vineyard, and excellent company. I could not have enjoyed the day more. Highly recommended.

This winery is a great one to visit. Alvin behind the counter is awesome and most helpful. Wonderful drinking wines and this is the only winery that we go to every year when we visit. Have been back for 10 years straight.
