We stopped here to try some wine. The people serving are always so friendly and knowledge about the wines you taste. It was fun and most of the wines I tasted were delicious and very tasty.

Sure! You'll still be able to do a tasting between 5:30 and 6:00, and we'll be getting ready for the following evenings event, Prom for Grown Ups, so we'll likely be open a little later.
