Signature Cellar Tastings
Signature Cellar Tastings are held inside the exclusive Gainey Wine Cellar. You will discover specially selected flights of our limited production wines offered to visitors seeking a more intimate, in-depth experience.
The variety of tasting offerings range from a vertical of library wines - offering guests the unique opportunity to taste several vintages of a particular wine; to Barrels to Bottles - a comparative tasting of current release limited selection wines tasted alongside wines directly from the barrel.
Rounding out the tasting menu is the Gainey Blindfold Tasting - a unique experience where guests will taste five Limited Selection wines blindfolded and will channel their inner sommelier by using their sense of smell and taste to determine which wine they are tasting. The tasting menus will rotate every few months offering guests a new experience when they return. With each Signature Cellar Tasting, guests will be treated to a cheese and charcuterie platter.
Signature Cellar Tastings are $45 a person and offered daily at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, by reservation only. Club members will enjoy special pricing with parties of 4 or more. Please call 805-688-0558 ext 106 to make your reservation.
