This weekend, we're excited to celebrate not only the 4th of July, but also the return of the National Cherry Festival! 🍒🇺🇸

Here are a few things to keep in mind before you visit us:

🍷 We're open for wine tasting inside at the bar and wine by the glass and charcuterie on the patio from 11am-6pm, daily, including July 4th, and we are not taking any reservations.

🎇 Masks are not required, but we ask that you are kind and respectful to those around you, especially while inside the tasting room.

☀️ It's supposed to be beautiful this weekend. Remember to protect your wine from direct heat while traveling along the Old Mission Peninsula Wine Trail, as wine can be damaged if left in a hot car too long!

🌭 Finally, like many others in the area, we are short staffed and do expect to be busy, so please plan for a wait and be patient with our amazing staff who are excited to serve you!

Be safe, have fun, and we look forward to raising a glass with you! #UncorkYourNorth

Today’s view from the vines! 🌿🍇

We’ve nearly made it to the end of bloom. Fruit set will soon be well established and the pollinated flowers will form more small, green berries, which will eventually grow into individual grapes. Fruit set is the first indicator of how abundant (or not) harvest may be. Although we’re about 1-2 weeks ahead in vine growth, weather can still significantly affect the season. #UncorkYourNorth

The only thing we throwback on Thursday is a glass of wine. 😉🍷
