Everything about Willowcroft is small. Small batch wines, small building, small tasting glasses, small pours. That’s not a terrible thing, but it felt a bit ..limited. At 1pm on a Friday afternoon, we were the only ones in the tasting room, though a few more people walked in as we were leaving. The winery itself has been open since 1984, making it one of the oldest (modern) wineries in the state, provided I remember my history correctly. Other than being small, small, small, we honestly don’t have more comments. The only real standout for us was the Albariño, so that’s what we came home with.
