We walked in this place as people were walking out gagging. The place smelled SO bad! Plus, the wine wasn't very good and the service was mediocre. Of 9 wineries we visited, this was my least favorite. I'd skip it next time for sure.

We go on an annual wine tasting tour each October. Mawby is by far our favorite stop. The staff is always friendly and create an extremely fun atmosphere. We are partial to Sparkling Wine ( Champagne ) so we love it because this is their specialty. There are 3-4 tasting bars to accommodate the overflow if necessary which does happen... More

Didn't end up staying to try any wines due to the foul odor inside. Just couldn't get past it, but this place was packed when we were there despite the smell.

Stopped in way back from Northport lighthouse. Sparkly wines. Tried 6, liked one. Very beautiful and quiet setting until a large group came in and were very loud

Our third stop on our day trip of wine tasting! Beautiful scenery as you drive up. The wine pourer was entertaining and knowledgeable! It was a Saturday in August so it was very crowded and busy. Our only suggestion go mid week earlier in the day or visit in the shoulder season if you don't want to deal with crowds.

Immediately greeted and waited on by knowledgeable staff. All white sparkly wines which are not my favorite but still a fun experience! After 2 complimentary pours we paid 7.00 for 2 four ounce pours & cheese/crackers.
