Interesting.

Good tour--knowledgeable.

The wine tasting experience had ample tastings, was interesting and we had a lot of fun. We learned a lot and had a very good group of people that we didn't even know, but made for a very entertaining time.

The vineyard, the grounds and the house are beautiful. The staff very pleasant, professional and accommodating.

The wines were of good quality and the atmosphere was pleasant and peaceful without coming across as overly snobbish. Beautiful grounds!

The wine and the scenery are the perfect combination for a wonderful day.
