Salted Vines is open seven days a week for tastings and enjoying glasses or bottles of wine in our warm & rustic tasting room or on our picturesque patio. Whether you stop by on the way home from work, come in with your better half, or with a group of friends, it’s our goal to make your experience fun and enjoyable. We encourage all of our visitors, especially if it’s their first time, to enjoy one of our tastings. The information below will give you a better idea of how we handle our tastings for individuals, small groups, and larger gatherings.
INDIVIDUAL & SMALL GROUP WINE TASTINGS (7 people or less)
At Salted Vines, we understand that all palettes are not the same, which is why we carry a wide array of wines, dry to sweet, in red, white and blush. Our tastings are $10 and include a taste of each wine we currently have on our menu, which can range from ten to fourteen different varieties. Consider it a wine exploration! We do this to give you the opportunity to discover wines that you wouldn’t typically try or may taste completely different from varieties from the same grape or blend you’ve tasted elsewhere. You may find a red wine you love, even if you’ve never liked red before! To finish off your tasting, we give you a sample, when available, of our frozen wine slushy. And as a keepsake, you will get one of our signature Salted Vines tasting glasses to take home.
Depending on the size of your group, a typical wine tasting will take approximately 20-30 minutes. If you like, you can order a local cheese or hand- made chocolate plate to enjoy during your tastings. Both are quite delicious and are shareable between 2-4 people per plate. Shared wine tastings are not allowed, however, if you prefer not to do a complete tasting, that’s okay we can accommodate you with a complimentary taste of two wines to help you decide which you would like to purchase in a glass or bottle. And if you are the designated driver, we are happy to supply you with a bottle of water at no charge or you can do a juice tasting!
GROUP TASTINGS (8 people or more)
We love group visits at Salted Vines! Hey, the more the merrier, right? If your party is 8 or more, we simply ask that you call us ahead of time to make a reservation. This allows us to be ready for you and give you the attention you deserve. Salted Vines typically schedules group visits during normal business hours throughout the week, on Fridays before 5pm and on Saturdays before 1pm.
We understand that calling ahead isn’t always possible and if you arrive without a reservation we will do our best to accommodate you in a timely fashion. Since we’ve been open, we have found that Salted Vines can be just like a popular local restaurant on Friday evenings, Saturday afternoons, and when it rains, which can result in groups having to wait for available spot at the bar for a tasting. Fortunately, you can enjoy a glass of wine if you have to wait!
Your reserved group tasting will be an intimate experience with a designated bar area and wine tender. Group Tastings require a non-refundable deposit of $40, which reserves your group’s scheduled date and time. Your deposit will be applied to your balance on the day of your visit. Each member of your group will be charged our $15 group tasting fee and will enjoy a taste of every wine on our menu, plus a sample, when available, of our frozen wine slushy. Everyone will also get a keepsake signature Salted Vines tasting glass to take home.
Group tastings tend to take more time, since everyone is chatting and enjoying one another’s company, and can last 45 minutes to an hour. If you would like to have cheese or chocolate plates with your tasting, just let us know when you call to reserve your time and we will have them ready and waiting. Bus Groups can also be accommodated with a reservation. To do so, simply click here to fill out our contact form.
