What is the difference between a comparative tasting experience and the Estate tasting?

During a comparative tasting you will explore our small batch, single-vineyard Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. As you compare the differences and nuances of each of the bottlings, you will also get familiar with the vineyards from which they hail and our winemaking process. This tasting experience typically lasts 90-120 minutes and includes a flight of 6-8 wines and a charcuterie platter.

In contrast, the Estate Tasting allows you to sample an array of new releases and varietals. This seated tasting will give you a great survey of our wines and the appointment typically lasts 60-90 minutes and includes a flight of 4-6 wines.
