What are your hours?
You can find our business hours for the café, store and tasting room here. We do close early on days that we have special events, so make sure to check our website before planning your visit!
Do you charge a wine tasting fee?
Yes, tasting flights are $10 per person, and reserve tastings are $15 per person (Reserve tastings only offered Friday – Sunday, pending availability of wines). Tasting fees include a keepsake Michael David logo glass, and are non-refundable. Tasting fees are not waived or applied to bottle purchases.
Do you allow wine consumption on the patio and outdoor grounds?
Yes! We sell wine by the glass and bottle that you are welcome to take outside with you. We also sell wine by the bottle in the outdoor bistro area.
Do you allow outside food or drinks?
No outside food or drinks are permitted on the premises. With all we have to offer, you won’t need to bring a thing except your appetite!
Is your winery family friendly?
Yes, we are a family friendly winery. We even have a children’s area on the west side of our outdoor grounds with plenty of seating for families to enjoy. We do have a seating area where only 21+ are allowed, but the rest of the grounds are open for families to enjoy all year round.
Do you allow party buses?
Groups over 6 people in size need to have their own staff person attend to them, so they are required to pre-reserve a private tasting and pay a non-refundable tasting fee of $15 per person in advance. The fee will not be waived with wine purchases. Groups that show up without a reservation will not be able to wine taste.
Do you allow pets?
Dogs are allowed around our outside grounds as long as they are on a leash. No dogs allowed in the café or wine tasting rooms.
Do you have food available?
Yes! We have a café inside our main building that serves breakfast from 7:30am – 11:30am, and lunch 11:30am – 3pm 7 days/week. You can get café to-go orders to eat outside on our grounds Monday – Friday (not available on weekends.) On weekends you can dine inside the café, and we also have an outdoor bistro area that serves made-to-order wood fired pizzas, paninis and salads Friday – Sunday from 11:30am – 4pm.
Is pond seating by reservation only, or first come, first serve?
The pond areas are usually reserved on the weekends for groups that book ahead for private tastings. During the week the pond areas are mostly first come, first serve basis as long as the area you’re looking to enjoy isn’t roped off for a private party.
