This was a very quiet place to visit early in the day. We came to sample the olives, oils, jams, chutney and other tasty things. They ask that you buy a small bag of white bread to dip in the foods to try. We didn't sample any wines. The staff weren't very attentive or welcoming at all considering how quiet... More

Yes, I know that is a bold statement but in my opinion the consistency of the nine wines we tasted was above that of their peers. The server, Daniel, was an excellent host and had a great knowledge of wines delivered in an informal way. A top spot for the best wine.
