Frequently Asked Questions
What are your hours? Our indoor tasting room is open to the public Thurs/Fri 4-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm and Sundays 12-7pm.
Do I need a reservation? We do not accept reservations unless you have a group of 20 guests or more. Please call us for availability. Private event pricing is listed on our "Events" tab.
Can I bring my dog? We are a fully fenced and gated working farm with livestock and Great Pyrenees working dogs. We do not allow outside dogs or other animals. We have a small petting farm filled with tiny goats, chickens, Flemish Giant rabbits, and our own great Pyrenees working dogs who take care of them as well as our vineyard. We do allow service animals under the ADA as required by law. We are a family friendly venue, and the public interacts with our dogs every day we are open.
Do you have outdoor seating? We have a seasonal outdoor tasting room on the vineyard with three covered pavilions open seasonally May-Oct.
Do you have heated/air-conditioned Indoor seating: Yes. Our brand-new winery was built in 2023 and is open to the public year-round Thurs-Sun.
Do you have food? We have a wood-fired pizza oven and make authentic Neapolitan-style pizzas from scratch with fresh mozzarella and pepperoni offered in our outdoor pavilions seasonally May-Oct. We do not have GF dough but offer dairy-free and vegetarian options. Pizza is made from scratch daily and served until supplies last. Our new winery has a commercial kitchen with a hot menu coming soon. Gourmet grazing boards with cheese, meat, fruit, crackers and chocolate are currently available in two sizes.
Can we walk around the vineyard? 100% of our wine comes from the 25 acres of wine grapes we grow here at the vineyard. Customers may walk out to the vines, but please do not touch them. Professional photography is allowed by appointment only with a contract and setting fee. Please call for more information.
What can we do at the vineyard? We offer wine tastings, wine by the glass, and by the bottle. Our fenced baby animal petting area is for our customers to enjoy. Children are welcome, with the supervision of their parents, to pet the animals through the fence. During the summers, we often have the animal area staffed and customers may go in to play with the animals. We host many special ticketed events as well as free live music and a fireworks display on the 4th of July. Please see our "Events" tab to learn more.
Can we bring our kids? Yes, we are family-friendly, but children must be supervised by adults at all times.
Can we bring our own food and alcohol? We do not allow outside food/picnics unless it's on special days when we have live music concerts outside and on the 4th of July. We make special announcements on days that allow outside food in the summers. No outside alcohol.
Additional things to note:
Seating is on a first-come basis.
We are a working farm which means the ground varies between grass, gravel, and dirt. Parking is on grass and gravel. We have limited ADA paved parking spaces at the winery and our winery is ADA. There may be tractors, bird machines, dust, bugs, rain, netting and other farm related activities occurring at the same time we are open. Please dress accordingly.
