Excellent wines. They still have an amazing 2012 under $30. Friendly staff, great selection and reasonable prices. Cider is also quite good. Definitely worth going to!

Great tastings and lots of details to learn about wine, the college, and the area from the friendly and enthusiastic employees. Full time and student staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Full range of very enjoyable wines: reds, whites, rosé and ice wines!
