As others have noted, this place gets crowded particularly on nice weekend days. The tasting room is not that large, and it can be difficult to find a spot on a busy day. Going early is key. We were able to secure a table on...More

I have seen music set up in different places. Sometimes the tasting room, also outside in warmer months. Best to ask before u go. The bistro and tasting rooms are in the same building.
