Positives....you can come in and taste without an appointment. Negatives.....wines are just ok and the most pricey we ran into in the region. Beautiful place so it has that going for it, but I'd skip it if I came back.

We had a lovely time visiting the museum and seeing all the interesting exhibits. We then had lunch in the restaurant which was delicious. There are lovely views all around the vineyards as well as an excellent shop.
