Great stop on our girls trip to Chicago. Although we couldn't enjoy the outdoor areas due to construction, we can't wait to see what changes they make when we return.

First time there. The wines were very nice. Their grapes are both locally grown and obtained from California vineyards so quality higher end than just local varietals. The inside area is really pretty and modern. New owners are investing a lot into the facilities and grounds. The weather didn't allow for us to spend time outside, but they have a huge outdoor area in back and front of the building and those too look to be expanding. They did offer food, but in my opinion are more light fare / snacks and not dinner options. That said, the food we did order had great flavor and a nice presentation. Staff was welcoming and courteous and guitar entertainment was excellent. Would definitely return!

Brought friends to the Winery for the first time this past weekend. As much as we love live music, the noise level was high and we had a hard time hearing each other much less our server. This won't stop us from visiting, though, because we love the ambiance and the staff!!

The winery is going through some major renovations. It will be an awesome place to hangout when completed. We had a good experience. The staff took all Covid precautions. The menu is limited now, but the food was delicious. Plus, live music! No complaints from me.

We had a wonderful experience with the staff and felt very comfortable. I made reservations for six and we were seated immediately at a table by the fireplace which was perfect due to the chilly day. The staff discussed the wine flights and food options and even suggested bottles for the table. The group and I will definitely be back!

First time to the winery- Pinot Noir is excellent! Food is fair. Can only do flights if you’re sitting inside , but they don’t have a ton of seating. Worth going to once all construction is done with. They should opt for fresh basil instead of the squirt paste-gross.

Went their for our Anniversary. The place is under construction but do not state it on their website. The kitchen has only selected items available. Half the menu was scratched off. The service is spotty. Also very pricey with minimal selection. Very disappointed.

We loved the wine and food. We did a tasting flight and had cheese and crackers. Then we ordered a bootleg of the cherry wine with pizza. We sat by the fireplace and loved the atmosphere and service was great. We already made a reservation to come back
