Nice tasting room, friendly knowledgeable person pouring for tasting. While I tend to favor more reds, I thoroughly enjoyed their "windsong white" , a crisp dry refreshing wine. Wish I would have purchased more. Oh well, next time

Such a beautiful place! 5 tastings for $5! Cheese and crackers $5. We were able to stomp on grapes, which was a blast. Great music, there is a guitar player you also sang! Made for a great afternoon!

Best little winery with family flair! Music and wine tasting is perfect way to spend a Saturday! Vineyard tours on a hay wagon with the winemaker is great too! Wines are sweet to dry... something for everyone!

After driving many miles in the rain, we were disappointed that the wines were not very good. Having visited wineries in Napa and Michigan and Galena Cellars, we did not taste anything worth buying. Prices seemed a bit steep also. There was a van of...More
