Rude! – A group of about 20 of us came here to do some wine tasting. We called ahead and made a reservation. I think we only expected about 15 people to come so a few staggered in late. When we got there, someone barked at us to bear with them for a few minutes and they would take us into the back room to do a private tasting. I thought it was rude but no one else seemed to notice. About 30 seconds later, another guy brought us into the back room and started pouring wine. A few people straggled in and he tried to keep up but seemed very annoyed that the group was growing. I don't know how we got on the topic, but we told him we attended a wedding at another wedding. He responded by cracking a joke, implying that the winery was trashy. Whatever. That's fine. Then he asked (in a snooty tone) if they were nice enough to provide free tastes for 20 people. He was annoyed that we were there!
We had planned on tasting some wines and buying bottles of the ones we liked. Instead, the staff was rude and I couldn't wait to get the hell out of there. We went to another winery and bought lots of wine THERE instead! The wine wasn't very good (despite their over-inflated egos about it), it was over-priced and the tasting area was TINY and ghhheeetto. Don't bother here, folks.
