Free Walking Tour of the Vineyard & Wine Cellar
How wine gets from vine to bottle
Join us on Saturday, August 30th at noon or Sunday, August 31st at noon for one complimentary walking tour of our vineyard and wine cellar.  You will depart our tasting room at noon and meander through the vines with your guide and see several varietals and spectacular views.  Be sure to bring your camera.  When you arrive at the wine cellar, you'll learn how your wine gets from vine, to tank, to bottle to your home.  Listen to stories about our Hollywood connections too.  Then you will continue through the vineyard and back to our tasting room.  We strongly suggest sturdy foot gear (sneakers, boots, sturdy shoes) as the tour is an approximate one-hour walk through the rocky soil where our vines thrive.  Note: tours are held weather permitting and no reservations are required. Our winemaker was recently named "Best Woman Winemaker" by the International Women's Wine Competition.  Come and see where she works.
