The ground at this winery are out of this world! Our private tasting took place in an upstairs area with a nice view of the vineyard. Sarah was great....professional yet laid back like our style. The wines, presentation, etc...was on another level!

I’ve done a lot of wineries. This was pre scheduled. Our guide Sarah was a doll. Even though it was raining we could tell on a pretty day the grounds are stunning. And check out the cars.

I don't know that answer. I would contact them directly since I did see some young adults on a tour after mine.
