NEW for this year . . .
The Tasting Pavilion from the past has been exchanged for open-air “Tasting Gardens” for 2016. These attractive shaded outdoor seating areas are surrounded by restaurant,
Tasters still have the option to sample a wide variety if they wish, but those who want to enjoy a full glass at a favorite winery or a larger plate of a delicious entrée now have the flexibility to do so. Food allergies and dietary restrictions can be more easily accommodated, and families with small children can come and go more easily between the Tasting Gardens and children’s activities as needed.
