WINE TASTING

WALK-IN TASTINGS AT THE TASTING BAR:  $7-$9

Come and taste our wines whenever we're open!  Choose a wine flight (Sweet, Dry, Fruity, Reserves, etc.) and enjoy 5-6 different CCW wines, poured at our tasting bar, and keep our souvenir glass when you're done.  Make sure to buy a glass or bottle of wine and keep that lovely glass filled - an empty wine glass is such a sad thing.  No reservations are necessary unless you're bringing more than 10 people.  We are unable to accommodate groups over 10 people after 2pm for tasting unless reservations have been made. See below for group tasting options.
