Consulon Wine Annex was converted from a small but functional winery office into a space to generously share, and help expand our enjoyment of wine.
We offer to host three tastings per week for a set-price per person including five different two ounce tastes of wine, family-style snacks, bottled water service and Sommelier presentation.
Additional wine offerings are available upon request. Supplementary charge applies.
Gratuities are neither encouraged, nor accepted.
Photography & social media interactions are encouraged.
The guest experience will differ depending on season, but all tastings are seated and hosted indoors during fall and winter. In springtime and summer, much of the experience will highlight the vineyard farming practices and importance of the vines environment and may be hosted outdoors on deck or lawn.
Specialist guest speakers may also be invited to share their knowledge from time to time.
