Tours & Tastings
We are open year-round and welcome you to our
Wine Country in Horse Country!
Our stone faced Tasting Room gift shop was once a farm tool shed. Nestled amongst birches and flower beds, the gift shop offers tastings and a picnic garden area with a tiered deck overlooking the vineyards and miniature golf putting green. Enjoy a Kodak moment with our horse sculpture “Vegetariat” located in the tasting room garden area or put a few golf balls on the putting green.
You can spend as much or as little time as you would like on the self-guided tour of our property. Pick up a map at the gift shop and explore our 38 acres and examine up-close several different grape varieties used in our wines and the different vineyard trellis techniques. Bring a picnic and stop for awhile to enjoy Mother Nature and take in the views of the surrounding horse farms. You may tour the grounds at your leisure during our normal Tasting Room business hours.
The Guided Tour is complimentary and highlights our renovated tobacco barn winery that showcases our wine production facility (during harvest time, this area may be off-limits), our flower gardens, the vineyards and finishes in our quaint stone tasting room where you can sample the fruits of our efforts with an optional wine tasting ranging from $7-$10 per person. The tours are Monday-Thursday at 1:30 and Friday-Saturday at 1:30 and 4:00 (weather and staffing dependent). Suggestion, if you are a party of 6 or more, please contact the vineyard in advance so we can make sure we are fully prepared to serve you for a great experience.
Monday – Thursday: 1:30 pm
Friday & Saturday: 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm
All tours are weather permitting. Approximately 45 minutes.
