Atop 52 acres of gently rolling hills, this friendly, mid-sized operation has an orchard, a tasting room, a restaurant, and a brewery. Weddings are held here, but day trippers are welcome, too. Guests are invited to bring blankets and picnics (or pre-order a picnic meal) and spread out on the lawn or at any of the hillside picnic tables for an afternoon. Tastings are $10 and include a tasting glass and 5 pours. The vineyard produces chardonnay, cabernet, merlot (even a blueberry merlot), and fun options like strawberry rhubarb. Guided tours take place weekends from 11am to 4pm, with six tastings during the tour (tours cost $15; reservations recommended). You can pick your own peaches (usually late July–Aug) and apples (Aug–Oct). Expect crowds on weekends September through October, and quieter visits on weekdays and the rest of the year.
