We enjoyed this visit and our server was an absolute hoot. Very knowledgeable and kept us on a "strict" regimen of when to cleanse our palates between tastings.

I love this pet friendly winery. The wine was really good and the service was friendly. There are treats for your pet and part of the proceeds from the Good Karma wine goes to local shelters. Next time I go I'll be bringing my dog.More

Our hostess here was so friendly and engaging. She was one of the 2 most knowledgeable servers we encountered that day. We stopped in on a whim and bought a bottle of Gewurtztraminer to take home. We will return!

Beautiful dry fingerlake wines. Small business. Knowledgeable staff. Especially loved the 2012 Pinot Noir. Gerwarztraminer and Reisling above average too.
