I love this winery because their driest wine was still sweet enough for me. The host walked us through a tasting of all of their wines, and explained to us what to expect with each variety. The two winery dogs helped as well, since I am a huge dog person. The grounds were pretty, but I'm sure they're beautiful when... More

Most of the wines are sweeter than I usually care for but we really good. Bonnie did a great job explaining the nuances of the different wines. Worth taking the time to stop here

This little winery isn't on the Shawnee Wine Trail, and you may miss it if you just follow the trail, but Google it and make sure to visit!! Wines were excellent (unfortunately for us the dry reds were not bottled yet) and the lady was friendly as all get out!! Of the wineries we visited this trip (the whole trail... More

If you enjoy people talking about you behind your back then come on in!! It also just fills my soul with joy to know theyre children and grandchildren do without very basic human necessities. The wines not bad tho.

the moment you walk through the door you feel like you're at home. The owner was very friendly and was helpful in helping us make our wine selection. I highly recommend the "black jack" wine-it was fantastic! we will definitely be coming back again.

Once you try Black Jack wine, there is no need to ever try another wine. I have gone to this winery three times, and Bonnie (and Homer) are wonderful. I am a sweet wine drinker, and Black Jack is the absolute best I have ever tasted. I have gone through a case and a half in a little over a... More
