Eight of the fifteen acres of land belonging to the Vineyard are vines, consisting of 6,000 vines of Shiraz Chambourcin, Verdelho, Petit Verdot and Semillon grapes.

I picked up a bottle of Tempranillo and the Pete’s Port- delicious!

The winery is open from 10:00am-4:30pm daily with live music on Sunday afternoons. You can choose a light meal with your wine or grab a picnic baskets as I did to spread out on the lawn.
