The Donelan Portfolio Tasting on 12/30/18 2:00 PM

upon arrival, we were a bit wary of tasting in a corporate park. I did not gather this was the set up based on the website. But no worries- James instantly took control and made us feel welcome and comfortable in the tasting room. The quality of the wine was also apparent at once, we were amazed and delighted. James is wine savvy, kind, funny. a hospitality natural. We loved him and the experience

Poor experience. Showed up 5 min prior to appointment no one was around. Waited for approximately 10 mins and no one showed. We rang the door bell and no one show so we just left. if I could leave no stars I would have.

The tasting room is located in an industrial /commercial space. The only view of the vineyards is a TV screen on the wall. That aside, the wines are EXCELLENT! So book a tasting and be prepared to be amazed.
