Only about 10 minutes from downtown with easy directions if you call ahead or GPS. Taste under a walnut tree overlooking vineyard. We enjoyed every taste and took away a few bottles. Nice people and good story about their wines.

Lovely owner poured us some great wine under a beautiful tree in her front yard. We had no appointment, but she was gracious and invited us to taste. I will go back!

The wine we tasted at Porter-Bass was incredible. We sat under a tree right on the edge of the vineyard and talked to one of the owners (who poured for us!). Meanwhile, in the background, her son (the winemaker) was on the tractor in the...More

Really great wines & great place to visit. The vineyard & gardens are beautiful and the wine is great. Small, family-owned (second generation) vineyard & winemakers. Friendly, fun tasting. Sure they'd like you to buy, but they're not pushy about it. Very high quality but...More
