Reservations during tasting hours:

 

Limit 25 people

Reservations: (408)935-9194

 

$12 per person: This fee applies regardless of age and whether or not each guest is drinking. If they are of age and interested, this fee includes our wine tasting.

You can choose to apply this fee towards wine purchase instead of tasting. For example if you have 20 people, the fee is $240. This can either cover wine tastings, or you can choose $240 worth of wine bottles to share.

This fee reserves the space for the entire 5 hour period that we are open. Please be mindful of the fact that we close at 5:00, and cannot open bottles or pour wine after this point.

 

We require a non-refundable 50% deposit to confirm a group reservation. We only allow one large group per tasting day, and an event is not reserved until we have received this deposit. The remaining amount is due the day of the event, at which point the amount can be altered to reflect an increase or decrease in guest count (with the total amount not to be less than the original deposit). In the event of inclement weather, we can refund the deposit, or put it toward a future event or purchase.

 

You are permitted to bring your own food, but we will provide beverages. We have water and soda available, as well as wine in addition to your tasting. Outside alcohol is prohibited by law: should guests bring in outside alcohol, they will be asked to leave, and the deposit will not be refunded.

 

We have tables that can be used for seating or food, for which we can provide black covering upon request. Our other seating tables are decorative, and require no covering. If you would like a particular arrangement of tables/chairs you can either send us a diagram, or we can arrange a meeting to discuss layout.

 

Please note that on Saturdays we have live music scheduled from 1:00-4:00. This is usually acoustic, and should not interfere with an event, but if you would prefer a quieter setting, we suggest Sundays. 

*We do not host events for guests under 21 years of age.*

Private Tastings

If you can't make the tasting on the weekends, consider scheduling a private appointment. 

We'll select a flight of six of our wines according to the tastes of your group, and talk you through each one. 

Private tastings are $25 per person, and typically last about 1- 1 1/2 hours. 

A 50% deposit is required to reserve a date. Please make appointment requests through the contact box below.

If you're interested in staying longer, or having more than just a taste, continue to our private event information below.
