  • Delicious wines and now hard apple cider. We try to go out there at least once a year to try the new products and re-sample the other items. You can get cheese, bread, and a meat product with a wine pasting. Our favorite is Edyn's Blush.
  • We did the Groupon Wine tasting for two and it was worth it!! The bread was fresh and warm, sausage was savory, and the cheese- a spinach and artichoke was yummy. I might try the pepper one next time. Immediately upon arrival you get the sense of a charming delightful little winery with a couple of porch cats to greet. Atmosphere is perfect with all the indoor/ outdoor seating you can't go wrong. As far as the wines are concerned, I prefer Cabs and Pinots but I've learned to try other things. Here the semi-sweets outshine. Our favorite was the Edelweiss. It's sweet, crisp, and with the kind of character we prefer. We also took home the mead wines and the Nebraska White. I had a lovely experience overall and I'd come back again...and try some of their gorgeous chocolate truffles. I'm sure they would've been perfect with some of their wines.
