    My group of 4 and I arrived for my birthday celebration at promptly 4:30pm. We had a busy day and this was the earliest we could arrive. I was SO excited for a tasting since I am infamous for loving penguins and wine, but we were refused a tasting and was only offered a single glass of wine for the same price as a tasting. Only my dad and I wanted to taste. This obviously did NOT help me choose what I wanted to buy. The staff was not friendly and quite snarky. Sadly, we left without a single bottle but went down the street for a much better experience. The other winery was closing in soon as well, but they gave us a tasting and even let us in to buy a bottle after they had closed. Don’t waste your time here.

    You won’t regret stopping here. We had the sweet flight and shared.nice size samples. We walked out with one of each and a few doubles. I however don’t like sparkling wine but that’s a personal preference. Finger lakes has so many wineries this is one I wouldn’t skip. Friendly hostess and clean environment with a few gifts on the shelves.

    Just arrived on a Sunday during a holiday weekend. Only one employee to handle the front of the place and do the tastings. We’ve been waiting since we paid up front for our serving while he checks other parties in and out. No idea about the quality of the wine yet but at this point it really doesn’t matter. There is a beautiful view of the vineyard and lake but no direct access from the building to the seating area outside to enjoy it without having to go out front and walk around the building. Just not very well thought out IMO.

    Place closes at 4:30.. dont go after 4. Of all the places I visited, this was the least friendly. Trying to visit the smaller wineries to give them business. Stopped by on Saturday at 4:30 and the told us the couldn't do tasting or help us even though place was empty. Sign says they close at 5. So we decided to go back on Sunday at 4. The lady working got flustered. Couldn't ring up purchases or the tasting.. took her 30+ min.. was 4:45 before getting out flight, never told us about the wine then came back 5 min later and told us we needed to finish them now because she was closing. Don't recommend to anyone!!

    Incredibly rude staff. They stop tasting around 4:30 pm and unbeknownst to us, we reached there around 4:35. People before us in the line got served and we were shot down rudely and without any concern. Unprofessional and disgusting behavior. Just like their staff, their wine has no style or substance. I would recommend any other place in NY state but this.
