Antelope Valley Winery (written Aug 24, 2018)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
We really enjoyed the wines here. Several verietals had a nice herbaceous finish. Nothing were overly complex but quite enjoyable. Nice price points to make this a go to winery for everyday consumption if one lived close. Finally, we really enjoyed out tasting room hostess, Candace, who was quite knowledgeable and fun. We enjoyed every one of their estate grown wines: Zinfadel, Merlot and Sangioviese. The Zin was not a typical Zin. Much more tart and herbaceous on the finish and cleaner up to that point. The Cabernet Sauvignon was quite elegant. Really liked all the reds.

Purple Toad Winery (written Nov 13, 2017)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Sweet wines were very interesting. Some of the fruit wines were crazy and in a good way if you're wanting sweet wines. The Blackberry Peach Wine would be great over ice cream. Unfortunately for us, we're not that into sweet wines. But if you sweet wines is what you do, then the Toad is for you. The dry reds were very different. To be honest I want to say the dry reds are just plain bad. But perhaps I need to get used to them. They were barely recognizable to me. Something with the terroir, yeast, winemaker preference or something. I don't know. Right from the nose to the finish, there is something very different going on with their reds at least in my range of experiences.

Beachaven Vineyards and Winery (written Nov 13, 2017)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 2 stars
Not the wineries fault really in that we're not really that much into sweeter wines. That being said, we didn't really care for their dryer reds which is out interest. They had a semi-sweet blend called Trio which made a nice blush. It was made with Barbera and Traminette. Actually the more I think about it, the more I liked this wine. Just not as a dry wine. Ambiance wasn't really bad, but it is a challenge to achieve ambiance in an industrial park alongside an interstate.

Stonewall Creek Vineyards (written Nov 13, 2017)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
What a gem. The owner and winemaker Carl is a true gentleman and a fine, fine winemaker. We thoroughly enjoyed talking to him and tasting his wines. There was not a bad one in the mix. All of his wines showed nice balance and finesse. His Cabernet Franc was one of the best I have tried anywhere. He had a very nice blend called "three eagles" that was comprised of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Tannat. And finally he had a good Norton. The setting was very nice. A great way to spend some time in the beautiful Georgia countryside.
