Tastings are $10 per person. We thank our service heroes every day with a 10% discount for military personnel and first responders. Please bring your credentials.
For groups of 8 or more, tastings are $15 and require a reservation in advance. Large groups must also provide a deposit to cover tasting fees and reserve their time slot. Should the group be smaller than expected, the remaining balance of the deposit will be credited toward glass and bottle purchases. Depending on the size of your group, a rental fee for use of the grounds or patio may apply.
Limousines, buses, and other vehicles for hire must have advance reservations, regardless of the size of vehicle or party. Casanel cannot accommodate groups larger than 15 people on weekends, including children. Large groups generally cannot be accommodated after 2 p.m. on Saturdays or Sundays. Please contact a neighboring winery if your party is larger than 15.
Casanel's house policy is to ID everyone regardless of age, so please bring a proper state issued ID for your visit.
