McConnell is our regular Friday night hangout. We love the wine, wait staff, and ambiance. They always have great musicians. Sometimes yes Food trucks have long waits or make us wait long times. I’d rather bring my own salad in, and snacks, but it works. Bobo, Chris, Tyler are all excellent waiters.

The staff, as always, is very friendly and quick to be of service. Slightly warm on the back patio but they moved umbrellas around so we stayed in the shade. As usual, the wines are always delicious. The gourmet food truck, World Fare, and the folks that ran it were fabulous. The menu is like none I've ever seen from a food truck! It was delicious and fairly priced. The one-man band was a great touch and added to the cool atmosphere. Overall a great time. They had to kick us out after closing at the end of the night!

This is a great winery that has very nice events and delicious wine. Food is sometimes provided by a food truck and I did not sample the food on this visit. When I have they have been good.

I love McConnell barn nights! The service is fast and efficient! The sparkling wine is great. Everyone is friendly! It’s perfect for a date night or group event outing. The music isn’t too loud but creates the perfect ambiance. Not to mention there is plenty of shade. My husband and I are regulars!

The highlight of our first time back at McConnel’s since the COVID-19 pedemic was yourVERY,VERY SWEET BOBO, HE WAS VERY CUSTOMER SERVICE FOCUSED!!!!! We felt very safe on how the tables were sit up, the music was good, but way tooo loud..😳 The food truck was good, but we should be able to bring our own snacks not ( a meal) …. My friends enjoyed their visit to your winery as well , said that they will definitely will be back soon!!! 🥰 Thank again for our very enjoyable evening!!!!!

It was a nice evening. Service was great. The set-up was spread out and was super cute. The outdoor games weren’t out right away and even then, there was only one game, so that was a tiny bummer. Can’t wait for the next one!

The staff was absolutely fantastic. They had some problems with the food truck but that was not their fault. It’s really nice that the staff comes around and serves wine and is very attentive. The music was awesome too. It was hot on the dirt so we moved to the grass. I think maybe the band should have been inside because they were in the sun. Or on the grass.

My Fiancé and I are getting married here in October 2022 and love to come for a wine tasting/day date. Always great service and the wine is incredible! Today the winery had a local musician come and also a pop-up ice cream service. New and exciting things are always happening at McConnell!

McConnell is a great place to unwind on Friday nights, great wine, great outdoor setting, great distancing from other tables, great live music, and always a great food truck. There are seating options so you can choose to be closer to the music or further away, and thereby regulate to your preferred noise level. Excellent!
