WOLF is a beautiful property, and set up so you can play games, or just relax and enjoy the wine. We arrived close to closing so we ended up being somewhat rushed. The wines were all very good, and the lavender ones were very different from any wines we have had before. We ended up getting a bottle to take home because we fell in love with the Dragonfly, a chardonnay traminette blend. We also stopped in to their gift shop where we grabbed some lavender vanilla ice cream. It was very good, and tasted very creamy and just like ice cream straight from a creamery. Will definitely return if in the area!
THE GOOD: The farm and winery itself is absolutely beautiful. I fully encourage anyone to spend the $3 extra to see the farm and the animals. The wine was good overall and the lavender touches made for some interesting and unique wines. A special shout out to Katie ( lovely red-haired gal). She was bubbly and very sweet, answering the questions our wine pouring lady did not. THE NOT SO GOOD: The one main thing that turned me off was the young lady pouring my family's tasting. She initially brushed us off, and told us to stand "over there" and then scolded us for standing at the side of the bar. When she finally started our tasting she did not give us her name (brunette, glasses, 20s) and proceeded to pour the wines without any education or information about the wines. When we asked, she'd utter a few words, and drift off. On a few occasions, she walked away and returned a few minutes later. It felt impersonal and was incredibly frustrating. The winery was busy, but several other staff members were able to keep customer service at a premium. I may return at a later time and will be sure to seek out another person to do my tastings.
