Their red wines are not my favorite, but the whites are decent and they have a great location. There is an amazing deck overlooking the river upstairs. We like to buy some cheese, fruit and snacks at the coop, buy a bottle of wine from Northern Vineyards, and hang out on the deck. They also have a bunch of board games to play.
I have been there on 8th October 2017. The price offered for wine tasting is quite cheaper 7 bucks for 7 varieties. This place is quite cool and very good. Reception peoples are very good and they allowed outside food to enjoy on stairs. I wish my next visit this vineyard will part of my itinerary.
The people were great. Friendly and awesome service. The wines were ok. Not like I'm a super wine snob, but mad dog 20/20 and boons farm I think are better. But the place is nice, wines not my style.
I have bought wine here many times, great service and, well, great wine. Check them out next time you are in Stillwater.
Terrible service during our wine tasting. I felt like just a number instead of being treated as a paying customer. Not personable at all and kind of pushy. We got no menus and were barely told what we were trying, the wine was terrible. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!
