Wine Tours and Tastings

Your Experience

Great Wines, Great Times!

“Come as a guest, leave as a friend!”

These are the famous words of our late founder, Jerry Hazlitt, that we live by every day. Wine tours and tasting is fun and we make sure to keep it that way! You can relax, unwind, and enjoy award-winning wine with lighthearted stories, interesting facts and smiles.

Our casual approach to wine tasting allows you to spend a little more time learning about wine in an informal atmosphere, without the intimidation. Lively conversation, freshly popped popcorn and our friendly wine guides can’t wait to meet you!
