Q: What makes our barrel tastings unique?
A: Our barrel tastings take place only once or twice a year. During this time, we allow guests to sample wines from the barrel with our production team. It’s a great way to learn more about the barrel aging process and how barrels impart flavor. Tickets also include a regular wine tasting, a souvenir glass and live music.
Q: Will this event be held indoors or outdoors?
A: This event will take place throughout several sections of our facility. The barrel tastings will take place inside our wine cellar. Regular wine tastings will take place in our Barrel Room. Live music will be held in our outdoor courtyard (weather permitting). Our courtyard will be reserved for event participants only during this event.
