Winery Parties

Tasting Party

Group Tasting for 10 – 30 guests
(please contact us to discuss larger groups)

A tasting of four wines is done at a seated, dressed table.  Your host can select the four wines to pour or we can choose based on the dominant interest of the group.  A staff member (the winemaker can be booked, subject to her availability) will lead your group through the tasting, giving background, tasting notes, and winemaking details.  If the tasting is done during our dining hours you can also arrange for food during or after.  (A popular option is to provide our cheese platters for the table during the tasting – allow $5-10 per person for this)   Yes, we need a reservation for seated group tastings – please call.

4 wines for $10 per person, plus gratuity, on one tab.
