TASTINGS HAVE RETURNED TO THE WINE COUNTRY!

For the first time since March 2020, we are re-opening our tasting room beginning October 1st with a knockout lineup of wine events planned by our expert staff.  

Friday night tastings are in a sit-down format in a more intimate setting to explore wines in greater detail.

Our Saturday afternoon tastings are a more casual way to discover new wines. In a stand-up format, each attendee is given a sheet with the day's wines listed, and we check them off as each wine is sampled.
