UPCOMING TASTING EVENTS AT THE WINE COUNTRY
The Wine Country's special Friday night tastings are in a sit-down format in a more intimate setting to explore wines in greater detail. Because of limited seating, reservations are required.
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. No reservations are needed for Saturday tastings. Drop on by!
