K&S Comment:

"A family winery that is rebranding itself.
From 65K winery to only 16K means
your
concept is changing drastically. Warm and
friendly tasting room, all guests are made to
feel welcome. My first visit did not
feel that way.πŸ™ Music on the patio
is a fun event. I didn't get
to try the Reserve menu on this
visit but its the plan next time.
