We stopped here because it was small and not a gigantic tourist trap. The two guys working obviously love their jobs and their wines . Wine was tasty, Cute doggie!!!

Of course wine is something that is very individual, each persons taste is unique, and you might not like what I do. So let's talk about the experience. The tasting room is clean, comfortable and laid back. No pressure to buy, fun and friendly host. As a matter of fact he recommended other vineyards we might like to try and... More

This place is great! I have been to many wineries in the valley and this one is a unique and fun experience... First things first, the wine! If you like fruity wines their Petite Syrah and Riesling Sweet Wine is great! Well worth to buy one bottle of each after doing their wine tasting, as in many other they will... More

Everyone was so engaging in conversation about wine, the region, music, etc...was recently purchased by a larger owner...I hope he doesn't change a... More

We had heard this was a fun, chill place for a tasting and so glad we stopped. The wines were all excellent and the tasting itself was very mellow and enjoyable. Be warned if you are looking for a view there is not much to see, but we didn't miss having a view at all. Well worth a visit!

We made an unplanned stop here and unfortunately it was a bit too quick because of our schedule. Although we did manage to taste several wines and hear a funky banjo love song...

Good wine, good music. Very personable hosts who interacted well with their visitors and played a few songs as we all tasted our selections.
