Went to a private event and was really impressed. The weather was iffy so most people were inside. The tasting bar had a small cozy area to sit with local artists paintings surrounding the walls, seemed each one told a story.

We have been back several times since my last review. I am writing again because the quality of the venue and entertainment continues. This is a wonderful, quiet, peaceful setting for a vineyard and a tasting outing. This small winery is working really hard to produce solid rose and red wines! We had a wonderful outing with family and our... More

Not sure what the normal cost is for... More

We stopped in as we was passing thru on our way to Helen. This was our first vineyard stop of our trip. The Cabernet Sauvignon was phenomenal! I'm glad I grabbed a bottle because I didn't find any in the area that was better! Very cute tasting room. Enjoyed our visit.

I was excited to visit the Vinyard and try out a local wine. I was a little disappointed by the tasting. Information was scarce other than the paper describing the wines and there were quite a few flies in the small tasting area. The wine IS good and I did purchase a few bottles though......
