The Tasting Room

Winery of Happiness

Our tastings are conducted in a rather intimate manner.  We sit close to one another, the room is “cozy”, and we talk and laugh and sip wine.  That means there is a lot of … droplets in the air.  In order to mitigate the risk factor in our tasting room, we require all guests to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (as all of us are), or if unvaccinated, to have had a negative Covid-19 test within two days prior to arrival.  As well, in keeping with the current local mandate, guests must wear masks inside our premises except while seated for tasting (obviously, right?). 

So far, everyone has been compliant and cooperative – and we are thusly very appreciative.  We are sure you can appreciate the rationale for these protocols:  We wish to maintain a safe space for our Wine Family, and as a private family-owned business, we feel a particular responsibility to safeguard everyone who makes wine here, hosts here, and come as guests here.  Bottom line – all of our livelihoods depends upon our senses of smell and taste, which may be compromised by Covid-19.  #bettersafethansorry

If you find any of these “rules” objectionable (beyond the obvious inconveniences) we respect your decision to not visit us.

WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN??

  • During harvest (which is happening now), 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.  Usually, this is NOT during harvest time because, well, we have no room.  And since this is a working winery, we again ask that no children or pets accompany – unless on a leash.
  • Tastings are Wednesdays – Saturdays with the tasting times as such: 11:00 & 2:00.  Expect about 90 minutes (at least) for tastings.  We LOVE to talk about the wine.  And the dog.  And the cat. And the kids.
  • You can make your reservation via our fancy Tock reso system below, right where it says “View All Reservations”. 

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