Tasting on the Patio.


Tastings are held inside or on our heated, outdoor patio.

Tasting fees are $40/person for the Appassionata flight or $30/person for the J. Christopher flight. The fee is collected at the end, or is waived with a $75 wine purchase.

Food is available and we have a rotating selection of charcuterie and other small bites.

Our cozy and modern tasting room (featuring reclaimed wood from the vineyard) is the perfect place to gather with your family and friends, and our outdoor patio features spectacular 360 degree views of the valley.

Do not hesitate to call us the day of, or while you are out here, to see if we can fit you in a time slot.

We are so grateful to have such an amazing group of fans and friends! We look forward to seeing you soon.
