A very nice and well maintained vineyard. The owner is one of the friendliest and most generous sorts you could ever want to meet. Listen to him when he makes a suggestion as he was spot on with each of his descriptions and recommendations while tasting their various selections.

Winery closed 35 minutes before stated closing time, so when we arrived they were closing, we were turned away. Winery was for sale, appeared pretty cluttered outside. Dont think it is worth the drive.
