Due to the Governor’s latest mandate, we are halting wine-tastings. However, we are OPEN for pick-ups and purchases! Saturdays & Sundays, Noon ’til 3pm.

Order online, and pick-up in store. Walk-in purchasing is also welcome. Wine Club gets 30% off all wine purchases, and regular customers get 15% off using the code “stockup15” at checkout.

Stay safe out there!

OPEN for Dine & Wine

I’m so glad we have a food license! Starting this Saturday, May 23rd, we will be offering Dine & Wine service! Since we have our food license, we squeeze into the early parts of Stage 2 reopening alongside restaurants. So, if you would like to enjoy wine in our tasting room (bottle, glass, or flight), you can, but it must be accompanied with food in sit-down dining service fashion. We have prepped our space to ensure physical distancing in accordance with the State, County and CDC guidelines, but that also means Dine & Wine space is ultra limited! If Dine & Wine interests you, we highly recommend you make an online reservation through our website RIGHT NOW!


How it works:
You must purchase food and dine-in to enjoy wine at our tasting room. We have developed a short, but delicious, menu to choose from (see choices here). Your Dine & Wine automatically includes one charcuterie board (feeds 2 to 4 people) and we are offering a WINE FLIGHT of 5 wines per adult, some of which are brand new to the public, one Flight per adult up to 5 adults per Dine & Wine! Our Wine Flight is similar to a wine-tasting, but different because we will come to you with the pours! 4 tables are available for 1 hour Dine & Wine reservations every hour on the hour, but if space is available, walk-ins are welcome. Complimentary squirt of hand sanitizer to all guests!
Wine Club Members: be sure to login to your account and use the code “dine15” to receive 15% off your Dine & Wine Reservation!

Onsite purchases and curbside pickups are still available! However, we can only serve wine to dine-in patrons at the moment.

We are working through this “new normal” as many of you are. However, we are super excited to see all of you and share our passion of wine with you again. If you have any questions about ANY of this, please don’t hesitate to ask!
