The next three hours here include a chance to tour the Vineyard there are 18 acres of vines growing, visit the cellar for another taste, participate in a few lighthearted games such as scavenger hunts and ring tosses; it’s a festival-like atmosphere with a live band and food booths scattered across the lawn.

The rooms here are filled with tables and chairs, it’s a lounge where you can sit and enjoy a meal, rest after dancing or touring the Vineyards, come and go as you wish over the next three hours and avoid the weather if necessary.
