When you come to the winery, after we greet you, we will ask you to come to the bar and discuss with you what you like and then help you taste wines to help you find which ones you like. While with our friendly staff (often Evelyn), we will answer your questions about how the wine was made, with what, and the quirky little things that happen along the way! We have a beautiful tasting room overlooking Lake Milton. We can’t thank everyone enough for all of their help building it and furnishing it! We have a lot of memories and stories and best of all, we did it together! We invite you to choose your wine in a no-stress, “drink what you like” manor, order some snacks, sit, visit, and relax. Come and sit near the “fireplace” (yes, ok, it is an electric flame illusion, but we think it looks nice!) when it is not a great day to be outside. No yelling over the band. Just an inviting and warm atmosphere with friendly people and good times. On warm, sunny days, sit on the front porch, one of the patios, around the firepit, or under the gazebo. Watch the boats go by. Visit together. Laugh! One of the things that our guests like about us is our beautiful, natural, calm setting.

Township sues us because they can’t determine how we fit into the zoning code.
We meet with the prosecutor and the Township zoning person. The prosecutor, after reading the law, says that we are right and he won’t take it to the judge. We thought that we had our answer and the township got what they wanted (a clarification from someone else) and we were done.
Imagine our surprise when the township comes back and sues us AGAIN! This time we decide to go in front of the judge because the law is so clear, how could we loose?
We did loose. Judge Durkin
We lost at the appellate level.
But, there was one dissenting vote that seemed to match what we knew. This gave us hope that we could win at the Supreme Court Level.
The Supreme Court takes our case.
We can keep our winery!
We are able to move forward and run our business like we had always hoped to. For the first time in years we can buy fruit without uncertainly about being able to have a place to sell it, make improvements, advertise (yes, we were restricted from advertising during all of this), and we just had a change to having a positive energy!
Finally! We have improved our sales room! Come and see our new inviting atmosphere overlooking the lake!
