Complimentary wine tasting. Great white wines (I only tried white). They were able to ship wines back to USA. Friendly staff. Relaxing atmosphere with beautiful view.

Half the delight is the journey to and from MO'W. gravel roads, so no scooters. Tasting is complimentary and the wines are lovely. There is plenty of lawn space and picnic tables, not to mention the beach, to sit and admire the view.

Went on a stormy day but was so worth it to find this little piece of magic. Enjoyed tasting the wines which was free. Well informed staff, helpful and welcoming. What a place in summer. Worth ending up like the photo
