We left Breaux, across the street from 868 Winery, truly disappointed. So we nearly didn’t stop here thinking we’d have another unwelcoming experience. But we had a fabulous tasting!

Theresa did an excellent job with our elevated wine tasting at the Manor House. We had a family group of 18 (all ages) and everyone had a wonderful time. The trufffles were my favorite and I love the suvenior wine glasses.

Yes. They have plenty of pic nic tables. You can't eat under the covered music area with outside food though, just the grassy area. Hope this helps 😊
