Guidelines
Our barrel bottling program has become so popular that we’ve come
up with some guidelines to keep everyone safe and happy during these
events.  
PLEASE SHARE THESE WITH YOUR GROUP!

*PAYMENT
We now accept VISA and Mastercard for payments as
well as checks and cash.  Please remember,
we request
payment for the entire barrel on the day of your event
.


* SCHEDULING
We schedule events April through October for either
noon-3pm or 4pm-7pm.  November through March we
schedule events only for the noon-3pm slot.  This is somewhat
flexible, so feel free to enquire about scheduling that might
better suit your needs.


*NO DOGS PLEASE


*NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL PLEASE


*NO UNDERAGE DRINKING
Please remember your ID, because we card.


*CHILDREN SAFETY ISSUES
We recommend that barrel bottlings be adult events.  Adults only on the
bottling line for safety reasons.  We have a deep pond on the property.  Any
children present must have adult supervision at all times.
 


*SUGGESTED ATTIRE
This is a working party.  Please remind people that wine occasionally gets
spilled and that casual clothes are preferable.  Dress for comfort and the
weather, and closed-toed shoes are a good idea.


*NUMBERS
Number of cases in a barrel: about 25
Number of bottles in a case: 12

Group size: Anywhere from 6 to 30 works well.  Our facility is
not equipped to handle large groups.  

We cannot accommodate groups larger than 40!

Timing:  The event normally lasts between 2½ and 3 hours.  
Figure 1 hour to bottle wine, 1 hour to eat and socialize, and a few minutes on
either end for arrival and departure time.
