The Vintner’s Knoll is our winery grounds restaurant offering a perfect casual venue, with social distancing, contact-free service with the ambiance of a country vineyard.

Reservations do require a non-refundable booking fee of $12 plus per table for which you receive two wine glasses when you show up.

Food and wine service to your table is coordinated through on-line ordering. Service is coordinated on line with our staff bringing your covered food and wine to your table. Each table has a QR code that will open our online store where you will place your orders for anything needed including water. A member of our team will deliver the items ordered directly to your table. While you can also order in advance from our website, you will have to enter our address (100 Wattaquadock Hill Road) for delivery and your table number should be entered in the apartment field at checkout
Effective 08/11/202020, Government guidelines require that all tables must order food prepared by our restaurant to be served alcoholic beverages. To accommodate this new requirement, we must insist that your food order be placed before or with your first order of alcoholic beverages. Purchase a bottle of wine and some great food from our restaurant and relax and enjoy our farm with your friends.
Please recognize that Massachusetts Law restricts reservations to a maximum of 6 people including children and infants. The purpose is to prevent gatherings of larger groups so in keeping with the spirit of the law we will not accommodate putting 2 different reservations next to each other as this would encourage interactions between a group larger than 6 people. Please see this link about our perspective on following the law as well as the spirit of the law.
After making a reservation, you will receive a table number via your confirmation email. When you arrive, park your car and check-in at the front entrance to the winery. The wine shop is open and we also offer contact-free ordering and delivery to your table.
At check-in, you will be provided with additional information about our social distancing guidelines and the new rules of operations.
