We decided to do a wine tasting here, as this winery had many interesting wines to choose from! unnamed (96)

One day after hiking at Atsion with Boyfriend Memphis and his parents Chris and Cindy, we stopped at the Red Barn for breakfast.  The Red Barn has truly one of THE best home-cooked breakfasts around!

On March 26, 2017 Margarita visited the Red Barn for the first time!

The Red Barn closed in their front area for more indoor/outdoor seating.

This outdoor seating area is also new since the last time we were here.
