Evening Wine Tasting

5:00PM – 6:30PM

Taste a local wine, maybe a French wine or some of our favorites from Central Coast of California paired with light appetizers. Each evening we prepare a selection of hors d’oeuvres to compliment our wines. We use locally grown produce from farmer’s market, various cheeses, fresh-pressed olive oil and homemade breads. Wine brings to light the hidden secrets of the soul, gives being to our hope, bids the coward fight, drives dull cares away, and teaches new means for the accomplishments of our wishes. – Horace, Epistles
