Q: Can I bring a picnic or a grill?
A: We do not allow outside food inside of our Tasting and Barrel Rooms or on the attached covered patios. If you choose to bring your own food to the winery, you are welcome to enjoy it on our expansive lawn and picnic areas outside where we have over 100 picnic tables. Any and all food must fit at the table you are sitting at as we do not allow "food only" tables or tables used as buffet stations.
Grills: Due to the historical, yet highly flammable materials and the local restrictions for food licensing, grills are not permitted at the winery.
