Tasting Room Guidelines
To ensure a relaxing and unique experience for all our guests, we kindly request that you take a minute to read through our Tasting Room guidelines:
- We love food. We’re total foodies. In fact, we’re eating right now. But as much as we love food, we cannot allow any outside food. We can, however, give you a ton of recommendations for our favorite local restaurants, some of which pour our wine.
- While we love kiddos and have some offspring of our own, all visitors must be 21 years of age or older.
- The only thing with bark around here is the wood on our barrels. Only certified service animals are allowed on property and arrangements must be made well in advance to accommodate said animals. We cannot accommodate pets.
- The dress code is wine country casual. Shoes and shirts are required, but the good news is you can strip these off once you’re home to enjoy your recently purchased bottle of Shadowbrook Wine in the comfort of your home. You’ll be doing a lot of walking back and forth to the tasting bar, but don’t be misled. We’re not a gym. Please no swimwear, sweats or cycling attire.
Thank you for your understanding.
