Compliance and Safety Measures

Per the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, we are now required to collect first and last names, as well as cell phone numbers for everyone entering the tasting room for tracing purposes. Guests will be asked to sit at a designated seating area once served. If there happens to be no designated seating available outside, we ask that you wait until space becomes available, and then we will be happy to assist you in purchasing the beverage of your choice. If you visit our estate, masks are required for entry and must be worn anytime you are not at your designated seating area. Our team will also be wearing masks, and we have placed hand sanitizer stations throughout the property. It should be noted that we do not allow dogs on our property to ensure our visitors’ added safety. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement these compliances and safety measures.

Reservations are required for Paid Tastings and the Reserve Tasting Experience only. Paid Tastings are scheduled every hour on the hour. Once your reservation is up, you may purchase another glass of wine and enjoy the property outside the tasting room (as space and weather permits). Wines enjoyed by the glass outside on our Estate will not require a reservation and may be purchased at our outdoor bar.
