Barrel Room Food & Wine Program

September update: We have had a great season with this program, but we are now in harvest season and usng the barrel room for winemaking. However, if you have a group and are interested in this program, we can make arrangements - we can host it in our new events room, overlooking vines and mountains, and still have a look in the barrel room at what's going on. Just email us with your details and we'll see what we can work out with you. Thanks !

Join us for small group, seated tastings in the barrel room, most Saturdays and Sundays from May through early September.

We'll have in-depth tastings of our current releases, all paired with a seasonal menu of farm-fresh gourmet food small plates, prepared by our staff chef Kris. Also includes a sample of our current vintage direct from the barrel.  A great unique way to enjoy our wines and share in our story.  Nice and cool in there too on hot summer afternoons.
