  • Love this winery! Great wines! And the tour is a must! So cool seeing wine aging in an old cellar. History of the building is interesting.
  • Went there for the wine pick-up party with my sister-in-law who is a member. The wine was great! Ended up with having 3 tasting of wines that were accompanied by pairings [initially]. Then proceeded to the main floor and sampled more wines. Ray Cunningham was behind the counter and was exceptional. Very personable and friendly and made for a great experience. I ended up snatching a couple of bottles. I would absolutely return to get some more wine and continue chatting with Ray.
