Range: 1 to 9 (9 is best, 5 is average)
Historic stone building flush with art and sculpture. Wine flights from many wineries.
Ma(i)sonry is not a winery operation or a tasting room dedicated to a single winery. Rather, it is a collective of several area wineries and offers a number of tasting options. They offer flights of individual winery’s offerings or flights of related wines from different producers. They also provide you with the opportunity to select a flight of your own from the many wines that they are pouring on any given day. The name is a clever play on words and situation: mason is a stone worker, drawing on the beautiful stonework used to create this tasting room, while maison is French for house or home, reflecting the feeling one has in the gardens and tasting alcoves that make up this place. If you appreciate three-dimensional art, you’ll really enjoy your visit to Ma(i)sonry. Everywhere you turn you’ll find individual works of art ranging from palm-sized pieces to outdoor sculpture, all of which is offered for sale.

Based on this experience, I would rate the tasting room as an 8 and the wines offered as a 7. This is consistent with my prior visit to Ma(i)sonry.
