Barrel Room Food & Wine Program
Join us for small group, seated tastings in the barrel room, most Saturdays and Sundays starting in May.
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.
By advance reservation, plus walk ups on a space-available basis. Reserve as a single or couple - or set up your own full group.
$35 per person. Two seatings: 1:00 PM and 3:30 PM. Limit 10 people per session.
