Don’t be deceived from the outside appearance, fun awaits inside the cave.
I happened to visit on a very hot summer day.
Walking into the immense, cave/tasting bar/barrel room was a breath of cool air.
While sipping, enjoy the work of a featured local artist displayed on the cave walls.
Relax. Lean on the wine bar or sit on an overstuffed couch, while talking about wine.
Tasting Fee: $20pp for 5 wines; fee waived with a three bottle purchase.
