We popped in here for a quick visit. The cellar door was locked but the friendly owner. who was on his way to golf, kindly opened up for us. Some lovely wines here and just a block from the main highway.

Served by a crass man who flitted between customers, conversations, and used language and innuendo we did not find appropriate or welcoming. Left before much of a taste as we didn't appreciate the service.
