Sandbanks is a great stop on the wine trail. They had quite a few different whites and reds to sample, 5 including in a tasting. Easy drinking wines and reasonably priced. Lots of bar space for tastings and very friendly/knowledgeable staff. The wine is vegan too!

It was a great day to visit again because it was a special unveiling of some of their wines. We sampled 5 wines, some great little snacks and the winemaker who was serving us was super friendly and knowledgeable. Remember this winery from 2001 when they were working out of the basement of their new home, a real success story!... More

we were here for wassail, a local wine festival. the wines that we tasted were generally disappointing, but the staff were friendly and had nice food options to snack on. the check out process for purchases was exceedingly slow.

I have been a fan of there wines for a while and after the samplings found more I enjoy. The facility is nice and the staff are all friendly. Although it was busy, everyone was helped quickly and I never felt rushed.

One of the larger and well-run wineries in the area for sampling. Easy access from the highway and parking easy. Many sampling counters with crackers to help with your palate discernings :)
