The Tasting Shed


This is a little bit of a trek, but you’ll definitely be glad you made the effort. Their mission statement is simple; really good wine and insanely good food.

It’s all rustic charm and gorgeous scenery with a few little quirks to keep it interesting like the antique fruit crates put to work as shelves and storage spaces. Inside the main building you’ll find the dining room with exposed steel beams and a menagerie of low hanging lanterns for a dollop of magic.

Outside there are a few different areas to settle yourself into so the serious drinking can commence: an airy pavilion, a cute little shed or a good old bean bag on the lawn. Luckily they offer complimentary shuttle services back to the city so all you need to worry about is whether that wine paired well.
