Our hand-built tasting room sits amongst 15 acres of land, 2 acres of grapevines, and a handful of beehives. Don't worry, the beehives are tucked away for safety. We welcome mead fanatics, wine lovers, and beer snobs to sample libations and engage us with the questions and thoughts.

We serve small bites of food, but picnics with outside food is always welcome. Our vineyard lab, Carmen, loves making new friends, so feel free to bring your friendly pup.  All ages are welcome, but visitors must be 21+ to drink.
