The tasting room rambles across multiple levels of an alfresco terrace, the ultimate in social distancing. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this winery feels like a safe, comfortable oasis. Reservations are strictly required and limited. Face masks are enforced. All tables are spaced at least 15 to 20 feet apart. Reservations currently require food a purchase, which starts at $55 per person. Not only are the wines fantastic (especially the elegant Presqu’ile Vineyard Pinot Noir), but the food, the service, the locale and the overall experience are absolutely delightful. Here’s a quick look around.
