The Truitt House, an elegant 1909 mansion that has been lovingly restored, opened in the fall of 2018 as a Bed & Breakfast and Event Venue. Our philosophy is to provide each guest an experience that exceeds their expectations. Guests are meant to feel as if there is simply no better place to relax, unwind, and have fun.
With its first wine released to critical acclaim in 1988, the Winery began a tradition of fine winemaking that lives on today. Inspired by Europe’s finest estates, the Winery is presided over by two generations of the Duffeler family – united by a single goal: to make wines with great character.
