Multiple architectural designs were crafted and laid replicating 6th century Saxon style. Inspired by the Annimora Church in Scottland. The Garrett family was the largest wine producer in the world built this beautiful chapel in honor of their late son in 1929. It is in the detail in this architectural beauty and the history of the family who built this chapel that makes this place so special.
