Groups and Group Tastings or Limos or Vans at Granite Heights

  • Group tastings (for any number of persons that sit together) or any limo, van, or bus or similar vehicle (for any number of persons) at Granite Heights are by appointment only and with deposit paid in advance.

  • Without an appointment and paid deposit, you will most likely not be served and asked to turn around so, please call at least one week ahead to reserve a group tasting 1) if you are arriving by limo or van (no matter the number of persons) or 2) if you are a group that wishes to have the tasting together. A room at our Tasting Room or at the Winery or picnic tables can be reserved for you. 

  • ​Tasting Fees are: 
    • ​​a) $15 (plus tax) per person (this does NOT include the glass) if you make an appointment and pay the deposit needed at least one week beforehand.  If there is a person in your group that is not tasting- that person should either wait outside or if seated with the group - we will charge a $5 fee per non-tasting person (plus tax) since this is taking room up in the Tasting Room, which is very small.
    • ​b) with no reservation, we cannot promise there is room to accommodate you. Tasting fee is still $15 (plus tax) per person if their staff and room to serve you. You may have to wait if no reservation is made and accepted.
    • The entire tasting fees for all in the group must be paid with one credit card or cash payment. 

  • A 50%, non-refundable payment is required via a single credit card to secure your reservation.  This is to ensure that you can have your tasting without any major wait.  If one or more persons are a 'no-show', this will still result in a non-refundable payment due to our time in setting up.  If you have not pre-paid, you do not have a reservation. The remaining amount due must be paid also in a single payment using a single credit card or cash.  To avoid delays, we cannot 'ring' up separate tasting fees for groups. 

Please arrive promptly for your scheduled tasting. If you are running late, we ask that you call the winery to inform us of your arrival time. 

Most tastings take from 20 to 40 minutes.

​Note, if you change the arrival time, are late by more than 30 minutes, or change the date of the tasting, we reserve the right to charge a late fee or reservation change fee of $5 per person.

If time and the winery schedule permits, a tour of the winery is possible.   

The tasting generally consists of at least five wines (which is usually at least one to two white wines or rose, and three to four red wines (one of the red wines may be a dessert wine). 

For Groups in general, even if you are not having a tasting and are only buying wine, you need to contact the Tasting Room at least a day beforehand and confirm with us that your group visit is 'ok'.  We are a small winery with limited seating and staff.
