What a wonderful experience! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff members who were more than willing to answer questions. We were lucky enough to have a grape truck arrive and got to see how the crushing step happens. The cave is very cool, and is literally quite cool on a hot day. Our tour and tasting were both great, and we learned a thing or two in the process. Great for any age group.

We had a wonderful time at the vineyard. First we went on a tour of the cave and tried wine direct from the barrels. Then we went inside and enjoyed some very good wines at the tasting bar. It was interesting to learn about the history of the vineyard and the environmentally friendly methods employed.

Considering the tasting and tour was free of charge it is the best bargain in the area. Grounds were very well kept, wine was good and will be a place we return to.
