"Had a lovely visit during the 2015 Vino in the Valley passport program. We had a group of 6 that were happy to be introduced to the wines and friendly staff. Since I am a lover Cabernet Franc this was perfect for me! Bought some for now and some to cellar. Can't wait to see how they age! Also looking forward to a visit when we can spend a bit more time during the warmer months. Thanks again to the staff who were friendly and knowledgeable!"
"Had my wife's 50th Surprise Birthday Party here last night 7-18-14. It was FANTASTIC!! The staff was very accommodating and hospitable. A great big thank you to Mandy, Carl and Carin for helping me make our surprise a great success! The setting was perfect and the wines were all elegant!! Our guest really enjoyed themselves and loved all the wines!! A perfect night with family, great friends and our musical guest Thee Dani Doll!! Highly recommend Tolino's for your next event!"
"Tolinos vineyards are located in a picturesque area of the Slate Belt. The wine tour was very informative. Carl and Liz have extensive knowledge of wine. Wine testing was a very pleasurable experience as each wine was explained with great love."
"Servers are very informational. Nice areas to sit outside and sip a glass of wine if you wish, and picnic tables also available. The vines were full of ripened fruit and the surrounding area had beautiful fall colors. Had a lovely visit!"
"We were shown their outdoor vineyard and it was quite a way to walk to get there. My husband and I have a great deal of trouble walking that far and that much. But....guess what? we actually did the entire thing....we also bought several bottle of the Tolino Wine...The best part of the experience was the tasting of the many wines with our Groupon. A great way to spend a beautiful afternoon!"
"Very nice....wines were amazing and reasonable. Owners were knowledgeable and so nice. Brought one of there wines to a gathering today and everyone loved! Couldn't believe Tolino's was 15 mins away!"
"Excellent wine.Very nice, knowledgeable staff. Perfect for beginner or experienced wine tasters. Patio available to share a bottle with your friends. Overall a great experience, will definitely be back!!"
"We really enjoy coming here, it's local, staff is friendly and we have two favorite "go to" wines so we grab a few every so often. Thanks Tolino's for offering the Groupon."
"Me and my husband couldn't have asked for a better experience. We traveled from Jersey to meet some friends at the vineyard and from the moment we pulled in we were impressed. The location is just beautiful and the wine was delicious. We tasted 4 whites and 4 reds and they each had their own unique flavors. My favorite was the Pinot Grigio 10 and my husband bought a few of the Cab 10's. The staff members, who are family, were super friendly, extremely knowledgable, and very devoted to their product. I would highly recommend this vineyard."
"Experienced a tasting at this winery today. They have a really nice selection of great tasting dry wines. They have 15 wines to taste that include Rose', Vidal, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Red table wine, Cab Franc & Chambourcin. You could sample 4 wines for free or purchase a $5 tasting and sample 9 wines & keep your glass. We opted for the 9 wines and we're not disappointed. Corinne, our host, was very knowledgeable about each of the wines, letting us know about the noses & notes. We enjoyed our day and will definitely be back. The most difficult decision was picking which wines to purchase. We opted for a few bottles of Pinot, but must go back for their Chardonnay. They also have a beautiful tasting room w/ a view into their wine production room, that was set up for the tour bus that pulled in as we were leaving. Best of luck to this winery."
"Tolino has a very extensive list of wines for sale. We we're doing a few wineries on the trail, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The tasting was $5 for 9 wines and keep the glass. We purchased the Mama's Rose."
