  • Cost is $10 per person (and applies to only to non-groups) and generally 7 or 8 wines are tasted from GH.
  • Some of the wines tasted each month may be changed (so each month different wines may be tasted).
  • The tastings of the wine typically occur in a library or in the dining room of an 1800's farm house.
  • If you bring a pet- we require all pets to be kept on a leash and be kept outside (unless a service animal).  You can request to do the tasting on the porch with your pet -but if we are busy or if it is during our busier hours, we will not be able to do the tasting outside. Best time is right when we open or right before we open.
