What Locke Lovers are Saying.....
Kirsten and her family vineyard is everything that a small town winery should be. The wines are delicious, they are involved in their hometown history and they're rewriting what customer service should be. They exceed expectations with everything they touch. Love the Locke family.
Amazing vineyard! The wine is great (but my bias for red is Sequoia, it's a MUST try). They host a bunch of events like paint night, yoga, candle making, personalized bath salt, harvesting your own herbs and much more. Highly recommend a visit! Not to mention that they support local vendors with great merchandise. You can spend a few hours chillin with friends inside the barn or outside on the patio. You won't regret the visit 🍷
Great wine and amazing family! Their Rose is beyond amazing, too.
Great wines, beautiful location and warm knowledgeable people
I love stopping at the barn to relax with a glass of wine on the patio. Always grab a fresh flower or dried lavender bouquet while picking up my favorite wines too!
