Nice tasting room, nice outdoor deck. Favorite was RNC Viridescens, second was Merlot. Overpriced. Wasn't feeling the vibe of the place, but I can see why others would. Nothing special to us.

Simply the best Riesling you will find anywhere. The Riesling selections tell you they are serious about this grape. Our server Mary Ellen was quite nice. My favorite.
