McConnell Estates

"The house Thaddeus built in the mid-1800’s was lived in by family members for more than 100 years, until the late 1970’s. For a brief period, it was used to store the many antiques that had been passed down over the generations. It was also a favorite location for family Halloween Parties. In 2003, the family decided to give the beautiful and historic house a new life as the current office for Wackman Ranch and the Tasting Room and Barrel Cellar for McConnell Estates Winery."

K&S Comment:

"The farmhouse is beyond charming,
it's like traveling back in time.
How does a fireside tasting sound
in a century old sitting room? Did
I mention Sangria on the porch?"
