Re: “Buffalo Creek Winery

Very disappointed! The lady that came down the hill to pick us up was not friendly. It was obvious she was put out that she had to come down the hill. There were 11 of us and you would think that would be a good thing for the winery. Guess not, we were putting her out. Four of us had been to the winery a few weeks prior. Crystal was working and was a lot of fun and took her time with us! We tasted 5 or 6 wines and she told us that they would be bottling some more and should have by 4th of July. The lady helping us just threw wine glasses out and poured the wine in like it was a race and stood there waiting for us to just drink it down so she could go to the next wine. Which was hilarious now as to "what's the hurry" because she only had one red and one white wine for us to try. Couldn't believe it, we had talked this place up that it would be a lot of fun! Especially, since we could boat down to winery. This was a reunion for my daughters Grad School Class and what a bomb it was. There was not any more wine ready to taste or purchase. It is our understanding that some had been bottled but not labeled yet. We stayed and bought one red and one white wine, the only options! Ha! Trying to salvage a good time with the group we stayed and drank the wine even ordered the meat and cheese tray. Again, trying to make this a good experience in some way. So when we got ready to leave and loaded up to go back down the hill, here came two couples that had walked up the hill to the winery. Our lady stopped and the people said there was nothing at the bottom of the hill to let someone know they needed to be picked up. The reply was I am closing early and took the phone up. The couples said you are open until 6:00 and it is only 5:30. She said we are closed. Could not believe it, they had walked up that big hill and it was not closing time yet. She turned them away. Wouldn't have took her but a minute to throw the two wines out there for them to try. Word was just getting out that the winery had opened and seems like people were trying to give them some business but seems as though the business objective is to see how many people you can run off. Terrible experience! The only reason I gave one star is because of the view. Management wake up. This could be a great opportunity but you have to want to manage to be successful! Employees are only going to be as good as they are managed! Maybe, you need to sale the winery to someone who will see the opportunity and make this successful! With the right management and workers it could be great!
