Maize Valley Winery (written May 24, 2022)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars

Favorite Wine: Middle of the road

Stopped in on Saturday night to see one of our favorite bands. They need to get it together a little better! Half hour wait for a table, but we went early expecting that. Got in line to order a bottle while we were waiting, but never made it to the front of the line before our table was ready! There should be a separate line for tasting, or don’t do tastings when it’s busy! Half an hour and still several people ahead of us!
