MillaNova Winery (written Oct 29, 2011)
Wine: 1 stars Winery: 1 stars Ambiance: 1 stars
First off - they offer 4 complimemtary tastings from a specified list - their dry reds are $4 to taste those 5 wines and $2 per wine to taste their dessert wines. I've been to MillaNova twice now and unfortunately the service was worse the second time. There were two people working, and only 4 customers in the winery (2 couples) but the staff obviously was put out with having customers at all. It was no where near their posted closing time so I was a little confused by their antagonistic attitude. It was so uncomfortable I almost just walked out but wanted to give the benefit of the doubt. As the tasting began the person serving us refused to even smile and did not want to talk about the wines. An attempt was made to start a conversation with her but all we got was an abrupt one word answer so we just finished the tasting in silence and left as quickly as we could. All I can remember of the wine was a cloying, syrupy sweet taste that was not pleasant - which is odd since I lean more towards the sweet wines. Hopefullly others will have a better experience.

Castle Hill Winery (written Oct 29, 2011)
Wine: 1 stars Winery: 1 stars Ambiance: 1 stars
It seems their posted and stated hours of operation vary based on the whim of the staff. Made 2 attempts to visit this winery recently - during their "hours of operation". The first day - was told, in person, that while they were supposed to be open no one was at the winery that day and to please come back in a few days. I asked what time they would be open on the day they wanted us to come back and was told they would be open from 10am to 6pm. When we arrived at 4pm (which does fall between 10am and 6pm) we were turned away with the statement, "We have already closed down for the day." Needless to say we won't make any more attempts. While my business obviously means nothing to this place - I've heard from several different wineries that they have also been hearing the same comments from quite a few travelers. Good luck to anyone visiting this winery.

Loved this little winery very much! They are moving on Oct. 31 - not far from where they currently are but more accessible for those who don't like traveling far off the beaten path. They are going to be literally right off 461. Their Reisling is delicious!
