6/3/18 We had the pleasure of going for a tasting on a the Bay View Wine tour. I ended up spending all of my wine budget here. Not only were the drinks amazing, but the conversation was spectacular and the trees are a sight to behold. They also sell maple syrup but you should definitely do a tasting. And... they have ice cream!
