At the end of your long climb to the top of Afton Mountain, you'll probably expect to find a cabin, or lodge, or eagle's nest maybe. So the Mediterranean-style winery buildings may cause a double take ("is THAT the winery?").
Inside, the surprises continue: it's as if you've entered a sumptuous living room, with high, beamed ceilings, elaborate chandeliers, and dramatic floor-to-ceiling drapes. And all that BEFORE you take in the spectacular, mountain-top view from the hillside deck.
It may take a minute to realize your glass hand is empty, but once you do, the busy tasting bar will serve up some nice wines, including a vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon from 30-year old vines.
Groups of more than 6 require a pre-paid reservation. Snacks available; no buses, campers, or RVs unless previously arranged; pets are welcome at picnic tables or other outdoor spaces.
Wines include Bollicine (brut sparkling), Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Mountain White (Vidal Blanc), Mountain Rose©, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Festa di Bacco (a Sangiovese-based "Super Tuscan" blend), Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pentola d'Oro (a ice wine-style dessert wine).
Groups: All parties of 6 or more must call ahead for a pre-paid reservation. Small group tastings are held in the Sunroom, which overlooks the vineyard. $10 per person. No groups larger than 15. Last group tasting is at 1PM.
