  • A Pruning 101 class, led by winery owner, Adrian Mobilia can be added on to the full wine sampling option at specific times during the day, priced at $25 per person.

“The gourmet chocolates being offered for this event are not your run-of-the-mill varieties. One of my favorites is the raspberry flavored chocolate paired with our Syrah. Katie and the team have hand selected the chocolates, which were created with our input,” said owner Adrian Mobilia.

Valentine’s Bruch will be on Sunday, February 19th from 12pm-2pm. Its theme is: “Pucker up and give me a quiche…and don’t forget to grab my buns.”

Guests will be served an array of quiches, cinnamon buns and fresh salads provided by Mac’s Catering, while enjoying wine and live music. Ticket price is $18 per person and includes food and one mimosa.  Advance ticket purchase is required for this event as well and space is limited. Tickets may be purchased online or at the winery.

“We like to put a fun spin on our events and this Valentine’s brunch is a great example of how we do that.  Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday, we wanted to give people who couldn’t celebrate during the week the option to come to the winery on the weekend to enjoy some delicious food, wine and live music,” Mobilia says.
