We bikes here on an afternoon wine-tasting bike tour. Ate our lunch in the shade, beside an evergreen stand, overlooking the vineyard. This winery has an extensively landscaped "back yard" with attractive patios, canopies and sitting areas.

The outside tasting area is really nice. Beautiful grounds. Nice location. A little more limited on the selection than some of the other places, but they were very good.More

This place has the best tasting room outside. Gorgeous! The wine was great and the cheese/meat tray was delicious. We had young kids with us and they played corn hole.

We stopped here for a wine tasting. It is about a mile off the main road (M-22). The building was very nice looking. However, not sure whatever they were doing, but it was really hot in the building and smelly. At least their wine made...More

We have been there several times. We love the dry Riesling, both sparking and flat. They have outdoor seating and a fireplace area which is very nice. Service can be spotty depending on how busy they are. Go during off hours or wait for attention.More

We enjoyed relaxing at the wine tasting at the beautiful outdoor bar. There is also a patio with umbrella tables where you can enjoy your glass.

The wine is pretty good for the area. The tasting is reasonably priced but the bottles are overpriced for the quality of the wine. Most bottles are around $20 with some over $30. If have no problem paying that bit the quality of the wine...More
