Frequently Asked Questions
Do you require reservations for experiences?
Reservations are highly recommended for all visits to the property including club members, industry partners, curbside pick ups and bottle purchases without tastings. Our seating and space are limited, and reservations ensure everyone has an enjoyable experience.
What if I am running late?
Your appointment is for a set timeframe so we may need to reduce your tasting experience duration in order to maintain the proper sanitizing standard in between guests. Appointments running more than 15 minutes late may have to reschedule, but please call us if you are running behind and we can generally accommodate.
Do you take walk-ins?
Reservations are highly recommended, but occasionally we can accommodate smaller walk in groups. We may be able to accommodate same day reservations as well, when space allows.
