Fantastic wine in a place with an even better sense of humor.” This is the type of winery you go to if you are looking for a laid-back atmosphere. But don’t be fooled, the owners take their wine seriously. They focus on “terroir driven, fruit forward, vineyard and varietal specific wines.” Tastings are by appointment only.
