John spent so much time with us and really taught us about wine making and wine tasting. It was a perfect afternoon and wonderful first winery in the area.

Loved the sharing of information and the expertise of John. Great story teller. Learned more about wine making which I really appreciate. I reduced the score because of two things. 1. The salmon. Was not smoked. It was salmon jerky. The portions were scary small and I do not care for jerky. 2. The tour size. Disappointed having such a large group that joined us. Felt like I was on a bus tour. We did our best to make it more personnel, but we were disappointed. Thank you. Darla McGary

The owner John and a member of his staff Sarah were wonderful. John graciously provided a very informational, personal tour even though we arrived on the wrong day. He was inviting, warm, and knowledgeable. We tasted an excellent variety of wines and purchased the 2013 Pinot and the rose- delicious! Highly recommend visiting!
