Our public events are a great way to meet other wine lovers, get to know our assorted wines, and learn to discern among the different flavors and regions. During our seasonal outdoor tasting events, you can sample delicious wines as well as some of our cheeses and snacks. Occasionally, we also invite special guests or musicians to perform.

No experience is necessary to participate in our events and classes: we encourage you to bring your friends and family to join the fun!
