We believe that our mix of soils, climate, grape varieties, viticulture, personal commitment, and a bit of magic have been the secret to creating some wonderful wines, but don't take our word for it—come out and try them for yourself.

Tastings & Flights
Tastings are available without an appointment for parties of 8 or less. The current tasting includes 5 wines and costs $10 per person, and take place at one of our many tasting bars. If we are packed, there may be a short wait to taste at a bar.
Flights provide an alternative to the bustling tasting bar experience, and include a seated tasting of 5 wines. Each flight adds up to approximately two glasses of wine and costs $25 per person. The wines on the flight change often, and will generally include one or two wines not accessible to the public. Take your time with our flight and enjoy the conversation of friends and family, all while sipping on your favorite Black Ankle wines. Flights are available any day we are open, but are limited by available table space. If no tables are available, flights will not be offered or there may be a short wait. To ensure a table, reservations are available daily at 12:00 pm daily. Please click here for a reservation!
Due to the small and intimate nature of our tasting room, please call ahead to add a group reservation for groups larger than 8 people.
We have a selection of local cheeses and picnic items to complement your tasting available for purchase. If you'd like to bring your own picnic, you're welcome to enjoy it on our outdoor tables.
We have live music at the tasting room Friday evenings from 6 - 8:30 PM, rain or shine. For a calendar of who is playing when, please click here.
