First visit today was awesome! Luv the wine! Luv the vinegars and olive oil! Very nice friendly owners! Will definitely return!

Stopped in today just out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised with the environment, the olive oil and vinegar and the prices! Plus, the owners were very friendly and welcoming, I felt like a guest in their home! Although, I didn't sample the wine there (I don't drink and drive) I went ahead and bought a couple of bottles which I will be trying one tonight. Will definitely be coming back and with some friends hopefully.

What an awesome, friendly place! Check out their blackberry vinegar. Can't wait for their Zinfandel to be ready in July!! Definitely worth a trip! Thanks so much to the family for your hospitality during our visit!
