We went to visit this lovely little Winery and had a wine tasting. The wine was quite Young and in my opinion it's time to cultivate itself into being a premium wine. Although they're very one was not available it seems to be very popular amongst the locals in the area

This small, family owned-and-operated winery produces some lovely wines. We tasted five wines and particularly liked the tempranillo - very unusual for this region. The sparkling wine was quite nice too. They have a beautifully landscaped garden overlooking the vines with comfortable seating. Worth a visit if you are in the area. Tasting fee $5 or waived with purchase.

We strive to grow what will harvest here but also have some uniqueness. One of our vineyards has spanish varietals such as Albarino and Tempranillo. We released a white blend with Albarino... More

We found this place off the main road and sampled 5 wines. They specialized in a blackberry wine which I really enjoyed. We also enjoyed the savignon blanc. The place was very cozy and had a small sitting area outside the tasting room.
