SUMMER 2022 TASTE & TOUR EXPERIENCES

Please note that all tastings and tours are by reservation only or “by chance”. To serve you better, we prefer reservations but if we just happen to have an opening when you drop in, we will do all we can to accommodate you. STILL, if you just drop in, we are sorry but we can’t promise that we will have a spot for you and your party.

THE WINESHOP TASTING BAR CLOSES AT 5:30PM DAILY

Booking Information

Some tastings and tours are designed to be outdoors. Please be sure to dress accordingly. On desirable winter days, some tasting offerings can be conducted outside around a seated fire pit if you wish. In those circumstances, again, please dress accordingly.

Booking Information

Please note that all experiences (except Flight Club) require a valid credit card to hold the reservation. Payment will be collected in person upon the end of your tasting. 
 
All prices quoted for the tastings are “tax included”.  Gratuities are extra if you wish.
