Thank you for considering a visit to our winery. Unfortunately, based on recent experiences, we are considering restricting access to our property by all Limousines and Buses as a result of the approach by many Limo and Bus companies that feel they are exempt from traffic signs while on our property. A fire lane is a fire lane for all vehicles. The walkways and access points to our wine shop are for everyone equally and cannot be used to drop people off as this makes access to the wine shop difficult for other customers and impossible for those with any physical limitations. Every visitor is treated equal so if you plan on visiting, please visit with the understanding that arriving in a hired vehicle does not provide you or your drivers with any privileges not provided to all customers.
Although hired transportation can create a safer journey, it can also contribute to over consumption. It is our legal obligation not to serve people that we feel have over consumed prior to entering the property. We take our responsibility seriously and take a very aggressive position towards buses and limousines that show up sporting signs of being a party bus, full of alcoholic beverages, with open containers and the appearance of having a full day of over-consumption. Additionally, Massachusetts farms are granted unique license which only allows for the consumption on our premises of alcoholic beverages produced on our farm. If a bus or limo enters our property with open containers, we believe that it is not only a violation of the open container laws but also a violation of our license in consuming alcoholic beverages not produced by us on our property. Your actions are the equivalent to walking into a restaurant that has a liquor license, sitting at the bar and uncorking your own bottle of wine. We take our responsibility to protect our license and enforce the law seriously so please come early, without open containers, follow the traffic signs, enjoy our farm, a tasting of our wines and start your day with an enjoyable experience.
Saturday and Sundays – Approval Absolutely Required
On Saturday and Sundays, Limos and Buses are only allowed between 11am-1pm with a prior reservation. We will not be able to accommodate buses or limousines that have not applied for (form below) and received permission. Request for access must be received at least a week in advance. You will receive a confirmation email or denial within 48 hours of submitting your request. Your driver must present our written reservation confirmation to the parking attendant/greeter upon arrival otherwise you will be asked to leave without visiting.
Monday through Friday – Notice Required
Groups arriving by limousine Monday through Friday are required to notify us of their arrival date and information via the form below but approval is not required. We appreciate the advance notice so that we can better serve your group.
We have many satisfied customers that have small gatherings, showers, bachelorette or birthday gatherings on our property. Because they are sensitive to our rules and do not feel it is necessary to bring attention to their celebrations, they have a wonderful time and appreciate the atmosphere that is created for everyone to enjoy equally.
We appreciate your help in keeping the winery a fun and safe place to enjoy with your friends and family.
