Wine Tasting Room
The wine tasting takes place on the patio, affording you a nice view of your surroundings as you savor the various wines. Plates of cheese are also purchasable to accompany the wines. The pours for the tasting of each wine are generous and can even be split between two people. The staff is also on ground to provide descriptions for each wine you taste.

You also get to hear about the history of each wine, alongside the procedures of making the wines. In addition, you get to learn various things, such as the crushing process and the aging of the wine. After the tour, you then get to taste the wines you have heard so much about. Tours take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 3 pm.
