This was our third winery stop of the day, and it proved interesting in comparison.

All/most were good...in fact I bought a bottle of Brothers at...More

I loved this place! It has over 40 wines though the tasting is for 10 (which is still a lot). I loved the variety and the grounds driving up were amazing.

For six dollars a piece, we were able to taste 10 wines. There was a nice combination of dry and sweet wine. Several of their wines were fruit: pear, peach, strawberry etc. We received a discount by buying a case.

Horton was a beautiful building and nice location we just didn't prefer thier wines compared to some of the others in the area. There is a good variety. 6.00 per tasting gets you 10 tastings. Wines are around 16.00-35.00 per bottle. Check it out if...More
