Wollersheim Winery (written Oct 13, 2008)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars

We enjoyed the tour of the facility. The wine tasting was fun and informative. The atmosphere/decor of the winery could be improved in the gift store and upstairs. It did not reflect the classiness and quality of the wine. Overall fun experience!

Very nice staff and atmosphere. We came home with three bottles of wine and had a lot of fun!

Stone's Throw Winery (written Oct 13, 2008)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 1 stars Ambiance: 1 stars

My husband and I have visited Stones Throw twice now. We both tour many wineries in the US each year and rarely do we come across such snooty people. When we first walked in, we were greeted so cold that I refused to taste. If I don't like the vibe of a winery I won't buy their wine anyways, so why bother. The winemaker himself ignored us when asked a question, and seemed stand-offish. My husband tasted their wines and enjoyed them, but the lady behind the counter couldn't answer many common production questions. They also refused to show us their production facility which doesn't help when the rumor about them is that they do not ferment and bottle on site, rather ship in pre-bottled wines. This may be a common practice for a first year winery, but a sham for a winery that has been open as long as they have. The last time we came by this fall we were again treated poorly. Mind you, we don't look like trash off the streets, rather dressed nicely and had plenty of money to spend. I was surprised to see many of the people on this forum felt the same as we did. Perhaps Stones Throw needs to re-evaluate the way they operate their business!
