Scroll down for our tasting menu.

 

We are open to the public for wine tasting from 12:00pm-5:00pm. Reservations are not necessary, but suggested if you a group and want to guarantee a table. A selection of five of our estate-made wines is available for $10, or if you'd like one of our engraved glasses, $20. We don't offer any food, but you are always welcome to bring snacks or lunch and enjoy it on our patio. You can also bring your dog! As long as they are friendly, fixed, and vaccinated, we'd love to have your dog join us as well.

We are a small, boutique winery, with a cozy tasting room and picnic area. Because of this, we do not accept groups larger than 10 guests, with or without a reservation, during our tasting hours.

During the week, we are also available for tastings by appointment, as well as private parties and corporate engagement events. See our Reservations page for more information. 

We do not host weddings, or birthdays or events for guests under 21 years of age.
