Tasting Room Etiquette

Tasting Room Etiquette

Be open-minded. Try something new. Explore and discover new favorites.

Ask questions. Our friendly staff is happy to share their considerable knowledge about different wines, their origins and how they’re made. You might be surprised at how much you can learn about the wines you taste as well as our unique grape-growing region.

Summer and fall seasons are our most popular seasons. However, we’re open year round (including weekdays), so plan a trip in the winter or spring when you can enjoy a little more personal attention and wine education.

Enjoying wine is as much about the atmosphere as the wine itself. Please be considerate of other guests by not smoking, chewing gum, or wearing strong cologne or perfume, which may detract from the “nose” and taste of the wine.

Stay engaged! The wineries encourage picture taking, but also suggests setting down phones, tablets, and technology to truly let the timeless experience of wine tasting envelop you. The sights, tastes, discussion, and camaraderie will make for the best long-lasting memories.

Patience is a virtue. This is a very popular tourist destination for good reason. Our stunning views and world-class wines on Old Mission Peninsula are comparable to any of the other great wine regions around the globe. We can be extremely busy during the summer and fall months, but we guarantee that the experience is well worth the wait.
