Due to region-wide stay-at-home orders, we are presently closed for on-site experiences as of December 7, 2020 and for as long as the order remains in place. You can support us, and enjoy our wines, via an At-Home Tasting experience with one of our knowledgeable hosts. Or shop online to deliver Brave & Maiden wines to your doorstep.
Below is our general visitation information for when we are able to re-open.
A visit to Brave & Maiden sticks with you. Between our sweeping vineyard views, our stunning architecture, and the personal wine experience we’ve always provided, we are proud to continue our renowned guest experiences despite the adjustments we’ve all had to make to life during COVID-19. Join us here at the estate to personally discover our limited production wines right on the property on which they were sustainably grown and meticulously crafted.
At this time, we are able to offer our standard hour-long guided tasting, by appointment, at $35 per guest. With our tasting appointments booking 2-3 weeks in advance for weekdays, and 3-4 weeks in advance for weekends, We encourage you to book your appointment well in advance.
