Small, intimate Cellar Door experience with personal attention and staffed by the knowledgeable owners, Rodger and Rosie. We will take you on a tour of our vineyard and explain our ecology and winemaking philosophy. Taste a variety of wines and talk about our place and why we are different and special. Show you our 3 million year old oyster shells and our limestone soils. Taste our homemade bread, made by Rosie, and you will leave with a greater appreciation of imestone, Pinot Noir, Grüner Veltliner and some of our wines (hopefully).
