As I looked at all of my winery options and the time I had left that afternoon, I was drawn to this one, maybe the word "Mount" pulled me in? I enjoy photography and being higher always provides great pictures! Well I was not disappointed!...More

A beautiful place to visit! Have lunch and enjoy the view. The wine is not the focus here. It is adequate but far below the level of quality you would expect from the price.

I disagree. There is a wide turnaround at the bottom end of the parking lot adjacent to the entrance walkway. We saw several vehicles drop-off and pickup people with obvious mobility difficulties.
