With the exception July 4th, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day we are open every day for tastings. To participate in the Tasting of our wines you must arrive and pay for your tasting at least 30 minutes before we close. This will allow you adequate time to enjoy our wines, beers and spirits. Tastings are sold between the hours detailed below:
Monday – 11am to 4:30pm
Tuesday – 11am to 4:30pm
Wednesday, 11am to 5:30pm
Thursday – 11am to 5:30pm
Friday – 11am to 5:30pm
Saturday – 10am-5:30 pm
Sunday – 10am -4:30 pm
No Reservations Required. If you are a group greater than 15 people, planning to visit and taste wines on a weekday we would appreciate an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), about 2 weeks in advance, informing us of the date and time so that we can staff accordingly. We do not recommend coming with a large group on weekends during the fall if you are intending to do a tasting all at the same time since space will probably not be available.
Unfamiliar with our wines? Looking for the perfect wine for dinner? You’ve had the Chardonnay, Cabernet, and Merlot but want to try something a bit more adventurous like the Strawberry Rhubarb Wine! Well then, step up to the tasting bar – try before you buy! All of our guests (21 years of age and older) are welcome and encouraged to enjoy samples of our delicious and unique grape and fruit wines. Our knowledgeable staff is happy to serve you and answer all of your questions and help you make your selections.
There is a $10.00 fee for our tasting bar which includes a complimentary tasting glass plus five – 5/8 of an ounce tasting of any five of our standard wines. A second tasting of five – 5/8 ounce tasting is availble at a reduced cost of $6.00 but does not include a second tasting glass. Customers are limited to a maximum of 10 – 5/8 of an ounce servings. Premium wines and ports may carry an additional fee. Reservations are not necessary. The tasting area is open whenever the wine shop is open. However, while wine tastings can continue up to the time of closing, we stop selling tickets for wine tastings 30 minutes prior to closing to ensure that you have an adequate amount of time to complete your tasting prior to closing.
Saturday & Sunday 11 am to 4 pm. No Reservations Required But Advance Ticket Purchase is suggested beginning March 1, 2018
Guided tours of our wine-making and distilling facility are held every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. The first tour on Saturday and Sunday starts at 11:00 a.m. with additional tours conducted approximately every hour. On the weekend we offer an informative tour that will interest novices and seasoned wine veterans alike. Each tour will guide you through the entire wine making process from the pressing of the fruit to the bottling of our wines. Winery tours also include a quick review of our still and distilling process and the creation of some world class spirits. Tours last approximately 3/4 of an hour and the last tour of the day starts at 4:00 p.m.
Explore our production facility and discover the process we use for making our highly-acclaimed fruit wines, brandies and distillates. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff specializes in providing our guests with a unique glimpse of the wine-making process.
Our tours includes a complimentary tasting glass plus six – 5/8 of an ounce tasting of four wines selected by our staff plus 2 additional selections from standard wines. The tour includes a commemorative wine glass for you to take home. Premium wines and ports may carry an additional fee.
Reservations are not required but are suggested. Accommodations for tours are limited to 35 people per tour so advance ticket purchase is recommended especially during the fall. A small fee of $15.00 per person (21 years of age and older) is charged. Under 21 years of age or people that will not participate in the tasting or free glass are charged a fee of $8.00 per person.
Proper dress and behavior is required. It is important for us to note that there is a significant difference in the approach and atmosphere of a winery when compared to a bar. We do not allow balloons, noise makers, banners, crowns, party hats or other inappropriate attire or appendages. The determination of what is appropriate is made solely by the management of the winery. We apologize to anyone that is offended or disappointed with our lack of flexibility but our goal is to present a professional and friendly environment where everyone enjoys their day without unreasonable noise or offended by private gatherings. If you visit the winery for your celebration and participate in our tastings, we are confident that everyone can have an enjoyable time.
