At Buffalo Rock Winery, all wines are produced & bottled onsite in very limited volumes and are only available direct-to-guests in the tasting room. No liquor stores or restaurants carry BRW's products and shipping is not available at this time.
Wine tastings are available and open to the public during regular tasting room hours, arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to closing to enjoy a wine tasting (allow an hour or more for a wine tasting and glass of wine). Guests must have valid ID, everyone gets carded!
Reservations of all sizes are always appreciated. Groups of six (6) or more must call in advance to schedule a visit so your group can be accommodated. Groupon.com and Crowdcut.com voucher redemption also require an advance reservation (please print vouchers, as mobile redemption does not work reliably on site).
Have a larger group? Consider scheduling a private tasting for a group of ten or more (discount vouchers cannot be used toward private tastings)! See Private Events tab for more details.
Local cheese, meat and chocolate options as well as bottled water, pop and Gatorade are available to purchase onsite. No outside food or beverages allowed. Please leave your pets at home, they are not allowed. Also, smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property (inside or outside). Remember, if you'd like to savor the flavors, don't forget your ID, everyone gets carded!
