This is an open plea to the proprietor/winemakers: I understand the desire to warn off the drunken bachelorette party bus types from seeking out another outlet to maintain their wine buzz. It is with great disappointment however, that I must share with you my feelings on your service toward the general public who are looking for a genuine and authentic Pennsylvania winery experience, and to perhaps learn something to better their appreciation of finer wines. Welcome your patrons as they enter the door, even if you are unable to attend to them immediately. $30 for a tasting is a bit steep for even the middle class wallet - reward those who DO taste with a little more than 1/8 of an ounce. A half ounce is just enough to get a better sense of the wine and allow it to open up as you sip. Take a moment to give some details - what makes each vintage/varietal unique. Kindly offer a pitcher of water for rinsing and/or refreshing one's palette. A small courtesy that goes a very long way. A smile now and again speaks volumes; try to look as if you enjoy what you do. On the day I visited, this was certainly not the case. Lastly, and the most important - please keep the condescending comments for after you flip the closed sign. I observed many back handed "compliments" and patronizing humor(less) quips intended to belittle patrons without their realizing. "Don't confuse fame with success. Madonna is one; Helen Keller is the other." -Erma Bombeck
