This is the best winery for us on the wine trail. We did about 8 out of the 10. The hospitality, the views and the live music were amazing for a sunny afternoon. Please do try the sangria.
Nice drive up a winding road to a great taste of some wonderful wines. The weather was great as were the reds.
