I'm in favor of a four hour workday :)

I attended a wedding at the winery, and I wasn’t in the bridal party, but my date was. So I got to explore the grounds and experience all the other parts of the winery while the bridal party took pictures. First of all, the place is gorgeous and well-kept. Everyone I came across who worked for the winery was extremely helpful. The free wine tour and wine sampling system offered were a great start to my day long adventure there. The wedding was in the grand stables, and everything flowed flawlessly. Michelle and her staff were helpful along every step of the way, and were hands down the most genuine and fun people I've met. Keep up the good work! You can’t go wrong having a wedding here, or any wine outing.
