Friendly staff. Quick service. Didn’t especially like their product. If you like dry wine he will really like their selections. They also have a very nice view.

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.

A group of eight women went on a short winery tour ~ this was our best stop! Not too touristy, not too busy! Staff was welcoming, patient, and helpful. Wines were well presented and the view was outstanding!

My husband and I went on a private wine tour at 2 lads because we didn’t want to take 4-5 hours on a wine tour of the entire area. Our guide Christy was fantastic. She wasn’t knowledgeable and fun to follow around the entire facility....More
