Private Tastings

We’re delighted to offer private wine tastings by prior appointment for groups of up to 8 people at our offices in St. Helena.

To request an appointment, click below, or email us at, or phone us at (707) 963-4292.  (If we're not home, we'll call you back.)  Include your preferred date and time, the number in your party, and the best way for us to contact you. 

Health Note: at the present time, our tastings are only by prior appointment and are private, meaning one group is served at a time.  We're a very small family operation with no staff assigned to sales or marketing, so our tasting hosts are either family members, often from the senior generation, or operational staff who enjoy taking time out from running the business to host tastings.  With all that in mind, we follow applicable health guidelines; all of our hosts have been fully Covid-vaccinated; and for our mutual safety, we ask that no one attend a tasting if they have any symptoms of cold, flu, or other potentially contageous illness.  We will of course refund any tasting fees paid if you need to cancel due to illness.

Information on Tastings



We schedule tastings by matching your availability to the availability of our hosts on a request-by-request basis. 

When we receive your request, we’ll contact you to let you know if your requested time is available and get your directions for payment.

If you decide to schedule by phone, our office is normally staffed from 10AM to 2PM, Tuesday through Thursday.



The tasting fee is $40 per person and includes   four wines. 

Each tasting fee may be applied as a credit toward each $100 or more of wine purchased during the tasting.

Tasting fees are waived for our wine club members and the guests who accompany them.  Club discounts apply to any wines purchased by club members and also to purchases by their guests.


We’ll provide directions to our tasting room when we confirm your reservation.

Tastings are limited to persons 21 years and older.  All tasters should be prepared to show legal identification confirming age.

Children under the age of 21 are welcome to accompany parents who are tasting, but of course cannot taste.

We're fine with well behaved pets.

Reservation Cancellation Policy

To cancel a reservation, contact us by email or phone.  We will refund prepaid fees if we receive notice at least a week in advance; or on shorter notice if we schedule another party for your timeslot; or on shorter notice if cancellation is due to health issues of a participant.  If we need to cancel a reservation, we will refund any tasting fees paid.
