**New Coronavirus Procedures**
We are now open for OUTDOOR WINE TASTING ONLY (Noon-5pm). We are open Fridays in June, July, & August, and every Saturday & Sunday, year-round. We have made many changes to our procedures to help ensure a safe environment for our guests and staff. Here are just a few of them:

  • NO reservations are required or taken.
  • Please note that MASKS are REQUIRED.
  • Please remember to practice social distancing.
  • Enter the tasting room (with your mask on) and purchase either a flight of wine, a glass of wine, or a bottle of wine. We will pour your entire flight of wine at once -- 4 pours in 4 separate, numbered glasses. We have single-use tasting notes that you will take with you to the patio.
  • Then please immediately exit the tasting room through the opposite door (follow the red arrows on the floor), and find a spot at one of the 20 different seating areas on the patio.
  • There is NO drinking or loitering in the tasting room. Please only enter the tasting room to make a purchase, pick up wine, or use the restroom.
  • The seating areas have been re-positioned to allow 6 feet of space between tables. Please do NOT move the tables.
  • There are two different sanitation stations available. We ask that you sanitize your area both before and after use.
  • There are two designated areas to return your glasses when you have finished. Please return dirty glasses to these designated areas.
  • NO food is available at the winery. If you wish to picnic, please bring your own food items. Please do NOT bring alcoholic beverages.
  • We have done away with communal water pitchers and dump buckets. We will provide disposable glasses for those uses.
  • If you are sick or have been in contact with someone who is sick, please STAY HOME. Call or email us instead.
    We will do our best to help you remotely.
