Tasting Fee:

Tasting fee is $8/person and includes five 1 oz. samples of wine OR four 3 oz. samples of beer. We ask you to call and have the number of people who want wine or beer the day prior. (Note that group tasters will receive a $2 off card for a bottle of wine or a growler of beer.)

No Call, No Show:

No call, no show groups will be charged the full amount of the tasting fees based on the number of people that was specified in the reservation.

Legal Drinking Age:

All members of a group must be of legal drinking age and be prepared to present a valid identification to prove it. If any members are caught attempting to use false identification, the group will be asked to leave the property. Have your IDs ready! All guests who plan on sampling our wine or beer must be over 21 years of age with a valid ID.


Our food window will not be available for groups of 12 or more. Due to our kitchen size we are unable to serve larger groups.

If your group is running 10 or more minutes behind, please call us to make sure we can still fit you in for a tasting.

Undergraduate Group Tasting Notice:

We regret to inform you that we will not schedule large undergraduate student groups, and if appointments are made under false-pretenses, we will ask that your group leave the premises. Unfortunately, this policy has been implemented as a result of numerous instances of deplorable conduct. We are a winery offering premium wines in a comfortably elegant environment and are not suited for large ill-behaved groups. Of course, we are always happy to welcome young adults over the age of 21 that are eager to learn more about wine and enjoy the beautiful Finger Lakes.
