    Once we arrived, we realized that we had been here prior on a full day wine and did not enjoy the tasting then and unfortunately this tasting did nothing to change our minds this time. It was supposed to be a wine and cheese pairing. So, in front of us was placed 5 small pieces of a variety of cheeses on a piece of rice cracker. We were then introduced to 5 wines apparently that matched the cheeses. The lady who performed the tasting seemed really disinterested and as if to just go through the motions and that was enough. At $30 per head overall we thought it was way overpriced for the value of what you receive, as against much nicer vineyards, that would charge $15 to taste their entire listing. Unlucky choice and would not recommend
    Ok wine with a pretty view

    The wine wasn't great and the guide didn't drink wine so not all that knowledgeable.... We did have the place to ourselves though so that was a bonus
