UPCOMING TASTING EVENTS AT THE WINE COUNTRY

The Wine Country's special Friday night tastings are a sit-down format in a more intimate setting to explore wines in greater detail. Reservations are required due to limited seating.

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!
