TASTINGS


WALK-IN TASTINGS AT THE TASTING BAR:  $10 (keep your wine glass)

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. NOTE: We stop selling wine tastings 30 minutes before close each day to assure guests have plenty of time to enjoy all their samples.
