Busy Week in the Tasting Room

Cinco de Wineo:  Fri May 5th

Taco About A Party

Join us for lots of "5" related specials on glasses, bottles and our normal food fare.

Kentucky Derby Day:  Sat May 6th

Join us for the 50th Anniversary of Secretariat's record breaking win!  Spin to get your horse to watch and hopefully win.  You do not have to be present to win but it is fun to watch in the Tasting Room. Post time is about  5:57 pm CDT - book your reservation for that last seating to watch with us and get your prize immediately. (Please no back-to-back reservations today). For those of you who cannot make it to the Tasting Room, you can select your horse by spinning the wheel and recording the horse selected by the wheel via this form SPIN.  If your horse wins you will receive a bottle of 2019 Sauvignon Blanc.  Note:  Only 1 spin per person please whether in the Tasting Room or online!

Don't forget to wear your best Derby Hat to the Tasting Room for a chance to win a prize!
