We truly enjoyed Lynx winery. It is a small winery off the beaten path and very much worth a visit. Jason was knowledgeable, personable and highly interactive. The wines were smooth, impressive and stood out over other wineries in the area.

Just a spectacular place to visit for a tasting. The wine is world class and the service is even better. It's clear that the people serving you the wine have drank it themselves and they speak from a place of knowledge and deep appreciation. Lynx...More
