We had a wonderful evening touring the vines and winery and learning about the wine making process. We also enjoyed tasting many of the delicious wines, along with a fabulous charcuterie spread. Bridget and John are very engaging and entertaining hosts and are passionate about the wine they are making, which shines through. We would highly recommend both the tour experience and the delicious wine.
