Plan ahead for transportation! We have a beautiful location, but unfortunately not an Uber/Lyft friendly pick-up location as it takes them some time to get to our location. Please place accordingly with our hours of operation.
Absolutely NO alcoholic beverages are allowed…on the vineyard grounds OTHER THAN wine from our vineyard. This is a legal requirement that applies to “bonded facilities” (wineries) and your entire group will be asked to leave if even one person violates this rule, so please comply. Public intoxication is unlawful, regardless of whether you have a designated driver or are in a limo/bus/shuttle. If a group arrives, and our staff determines that anyone in that group is intoxicated, that group will be asked to leave. This policy also applies to individuals arriving in private cars. It is against the law to serve or sell alcohol to an intoxicated person. Winery servers cannot serve anyone they suspect is over or near the “legal limit” of alcohol. It is a judgment call and the winery management will support our TIPS certified employees. If you are advised that you cannot be served, please do not argue with our staff. Additionally, wineries, by law, can refuse service to the entire group if ONE person is considered “over the limit” of alcohol.
Can I bring dogs or other pets?
Please NO DOGS…read on…
In the past, we have allowed our guests to bring their dogs to the winery, on leash, outside only. We never allowed dogs inside the tasting room (except for service dogs). However, our insurance company will no longer allow us to continue this policy due to liability. Your dog may be the best trained and behaved, but there is no guarantee that all visiting dogs would be that well trained and we would hate to have dogs barking at each other, get into a fight or bite someone.
In addition, we have had several incidents of people NOT picking up after their dogs, which is not cool for anyone.
We hope that you understand our new policy, and that our winery dogs, Bodie and Z are the only dogs allowed on the property. You may keep your dog inside the car, but you will no longer be able to walk them on the property or sit on the pergola with them.
