This is a beautiful winery. The staff was very friendly and made for a good experience for us. I think that is half the battle regardless of how the wine taste. The wine here was excellent. Loved the whites.

Beautiful, modern winery overlooking the lake. Very attentive server. Wines were very good. Enjoyed the lovely cheeseboard we ordered. We enjoyed it so much we came back the same day with friends!

Great view. Super modern building (one could say it clashes with the rural surroundings). Very good wine. Try and get a tour of the winemaking facilities.

Stopped in with my daughter— we tasted the whites and sparkling wine—tasting is free if you purchase $25 of wine or goods. Everyone who works here are very knowledgeable and nice— the view the view the view—- beautiful
