Now this is a bonus, not only can you reserve a wine tasting but you can also reserve a cider tasting. Decisions, decisions.
In the interests of full disclosure; The View is one of my “go to” wines, and that includes every white wine they craft. The wines are yummy and affordable. I love the idea of wine in a can that is perfect for on the lake on at the picnic table.
The team at The View are friendly and welcoming, a bit more laid back an if you are into wine kitch this is the place for you. Four legged friends welcome, on leash in the tasting room. Not to mention their $5 fee is probably the best you’ll find!
