Groups without reservations may be denied service because we are understaffed or our facility is already full.

If you are looking for a quiet afternoon with one-on-one interaction with our knowledgeable tasting room staff, then we recommend a week day visit. Please check our hours for what weekdays we are open. If you are looking for a lot of interaction with other visitors and a more festive atmosphere, we recommend visiting on Saturdays and Sundays between 1pm-4pm.

Wine is our focus, but we do have a small gift area in our tasting room with an ever-changing collection of wares and gourmet food items.
