UPDATE 3/12/21: Indoor seating is currently first come, first served, at 50% capacity. Due to the constraints of the current COVID restrictions, we are only booking reservations for the following groups at this time:
• Groups of more than seven guests (since it will necessitate more than one table due to the current restrictions)
• Guests interested in an in-person small group class with one of our sommeliers (entails additional fee)
• Virtual House Parties via Zoom
• Private Tastings or Private Fundraiser Tastings for late Summer 2021 and beyond (with the caveat that dates may need to be adjusted depending on how long COVID restrictions on gatherings last)
If you are interested any of the above options, please complete the appropriate webform below and we'll respond to your message ASAP.
If your group consists of fewer than seven guests and you're not interested in adding an in-person small group class for an additional fee, please do not fill out the webform (we don't want to waste your time!) — please just drop in during regular business hours and we will be happy to see you!

Our Auburn Hills location has a private party room!
The Veraison Room offers a more secluded experience for groups of up to 25 guests.
Due to MDHHS limits on groups, we currently are putting booked Group Tastings in the Veraison Room instead of in the main space, so the room is not available for renting. However, it may be available for renting later in the year. When available: Attendees order off the regular menu at menu pricing; can be charged to individuals or to organizer as desired. $50 non-refundable room rental fee + contract. Please see contract for cancellation/rescheduling policies/fees.
Please note that due to our space and tasting format, any groups of eight or more that drop in without a reservation may be limited to glasses (instead of tasting flights) to expedite services for all guests present. * This policy is moot during COVID, as the MDHHS restricts tables of groups of six or fewer.
Formal presentations are not included (though our team members are skilled at answering questions and helping guests pick wines they'll love). Formal presentations are available for a nominal fee; email us for pricing.
All deposits and fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable.
Outside food is permitted! We also can put you in touch with our trusted caterering partners if desired. Outside alcohol is not permitted.
