I spent a recent Sunday afternoon with a friend at Sarah's Vineyard & Winery and we had a wonderful experience. We arrived around 2 pm on a sunny day. We walked into a cheerful and bustling environment. They had two private events going on that day so people were coming and going.

As soon as we walked into the main bar area the staff was very accommodating. They answered our questions about some of the wines we were interested in. You can purchase by the taste, glass, 1/2 carafe, full carafe or bottles to go. It is a seat yourself kind of place and we chose a table outside on the back deck to take in the beautiful scenery. It was the perfect spot to soak up some sun. There was not an empty seat in the house and everyone was very upbeat enjoying the fresh air. 

Ok now for the important part: the wine! Our first choice was the white Golden Solstice. I am a fan of sweet things so this was a perfect choice for me, very tasty. It was made with Niagara grapes grown near Lake Erie. Then we just had to try the red sangria with fresh fruit. It was very refreshing and went down way to easy. We were wishing we would have requested the full carafe! Our final choice of the day was the red Sweet Elisa. The subtle flavor of Concord grapes confirmed that it was another wise decision. 

We also enjoyed a fruit, cheese & cracker plate which was perfect along with our wine tastings. I definitely want to go back to try the wood fired pizzas which are offered on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. I was here once before to attend a wedding shower and I must say both of my visits were really enjoyable.

Another fun thing is you can check out the artwork inside while you sip. It is a mix of glass, pottery, and other unique pieces. I would recommended to visit for a date night or a girls day out!
