The Tasting Room


How do you describe an intangible concept like taste? How can you accurately convey a wine’s “mouthfeel” or “finish” or “length”? Well, if you’re James MacPhail, you name your brand Tongue Dancer Wines, that’s how! We would like to share with you our story and our wines in our small and privately-owned winery (where all the magic happens) – located just steps from our home. So, if you like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (or even if you don’t, but are the adventurous type) and you like them with character and weight and layers, then this is the place for you. Schedule a private, sit-down, educational and intimate tasting experience – and taste the wines that dance on your tongue!

Always something interesting,

James and Kerry MacPhail

PS: Tongue Dancer Wines will stay intimate on scale and scope. We only have so many hours in the day


  • We are limited to using our small tasting room upstairs only.  Here, we can host up to 6 people comfortably.  This will be a tight squeeze, so no children or pets allowed.
  • When we can, we can host you at our zinc Table On Wheels (TOW) for tastings down in the production room of the winery – where we have a little more room.  This is dependent upon what’s happening in the winery at any given day.  And since this is a working winery, we again ask that no children or pets accompany.
  • Tastings are Tuesdays – Saturdays with the tasting times as such: 11:00 & 2:00.  Expect about 90 minutes for tastings.  
  • You will taste approximately 6 wines – available only here. Tasting fee is $30 (per person) and can be used towards a 2-bottle per person purchase (for example, if there are 4 of you, then it’s a 8-bottle minimum purchase for the tasting fee to be waived). 

Our team is still available to you with any questions.  Please reach out at any time via email or phone (707.433.4780).
