As a non-wine drinker, I was not feeling particularly enthusiastic about tasting wines. I am not a fan of grape-based wines that I've tried, but did find a different fruit wine to be alright. I love visiting vineyards and wineries as they are often very pretty locations, with very knowledgeable staff. I enjoy a good poke around nature and seeing how things are made. They had a larger section on the website for their non-grape based wines, so I was very keen on seeing how I felt about those. I was VERY pleasantly surprised by how much I genuinely enjoyed some of the ones I tried. Particularly the Spiced Apple (apple, cinnamon, cloves), Cappuvino (coffee based wine), and Hallowine (apple, pumpkin, spices). All quite sweet, so no more than a small glass a piece, but extremely delicious varieties! I think all of us tasting agree that those were all great flavors, and the rest of us were split on the other types we enjoyed. (The grape-based wines were apparently nothing to write home about, but the non-grape wines certainly were!) I absolutely would recommend going in for a tasting if you're there. They have 8 tickets for a couple sips of wine, with several seasonal varieties as "freebies".
