Have you been to one of our Wine Tastings? 

They last about an hour, they are casual, informative and fun! Open Tastings do not take as long.
We pour a few wines, and serve delicious light appetizers that pair with the wines.

We talk about the wines, what is unique about them, what type of food they go best with and other interesting fun facts. 

Tastings are only $10.00 per person and are a great way to spend an evening
