Frind Estate Winery

Last time we were in town, we’d tried to go to Frind Estate Winery but it was packed and the wait time was ridiculous. If you didn’t know, the owner started up this winery after selling off Plenty of Fish.

Tasting fee is $10.00/person (for 5 pours) but the fee is waived with a purchase of a bottle.

Our pourer was friendly but didn’t like how she tried multiple times to push the wine club on us and didn’t state how much their tasting fee was upfront.

They also don’t have it anywhere on their tasting sheet. We tasted:

2019 Big white
2021 Viognier
2021 Rosé
UntitledEasy summer sipper. Light with mostly strawberry notes.

We bought a bottle ($19.99) for home.

2020 Premier cabernet franc

2020 Midnight
This was their most interesting wine (marechal foch). Hint of coffee and cocoa notes came through.

Sweet, beach side views at Frind but unspectacular wines.
