Guided Tour & Tasting

We offer FREE wine tastings during "Normal" business hours.

For individuals, couples, and groups of 7 or fewer.  With this experience you will be able to taste up to three of our handcrafted wines out of a full list of over twenty-eight. We hope to share information with you about our winery history, signature wines, upcoming events, and provide a pleasurable visit.

We also offer PRIVATE wine tastings for Groups.

Prior events have included small groups of 8 or more, birthdays, retirements, girls night out, bachelorette groups, marriage proposals, and bus tour and tasting.

We enjoy helping to customize the event, but regret that we cannot accommodate any kind of outside beverages.

Attendees either under 21, or not drinking for any other reason, can be provided with no-alcohol beverages.

Creating a Beautiful and Cozy Outdoors

Whether you are seeking sun or shade, we feature a delightful array of flowering trees, climbing vines, lovely perennial flowers, and potted annuals and sensual herbs to create a relaxing and peaceful experience.

Our deck is ready with lots of seating and layered Coolaroo Shade Sails that float gently in the breeze above you as you sip on your favorite Van Wijk Wine.

Stay Tuned! We're planning to add some 10 ft. x 12 ft. Longford Wood Outdoor Patio Pergolas with a Sling Canopy in the south yard off the deck this summer! This will expand our shaded outdoor area during Live Music events.

We're looking for breathtaking ideas to create a courtyard effect, so don't be shy and let us know your ideas.

See you soon!
