The visitors centre was of great help. We hadn’t booked any hotels prior to our trip and the visitors centre helped us out quickly and efficiently. It was pretty good to drop by there since they also recommended activities and companies to look up.

The best one stop shop for wine in the area. While it does not replace visiting local wineries it is a great spot if you need wine and don’t have time to go to the wineries. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Working out of a trailer is never ideal. The old location was very nice and roomy. I'm sure there are plans to get better digs.
