Do you serve food?
We serve snack foods, such as cheese, crackers, pretzels, chips, biscotti, etc. Soft drinks, bottled water, and fruit juices are available. Many of our customers bring a picnic or take-out meal to enjoy with a bottle of Wolf Creek wine. Local restaurants who offer delivery are happy to deliver your pizzas, pastas, and other meals to the winery.
Do you take reservations? Are large groups allowed? What are your busiest times?
Reservations are not available. The Tasting Room has limited seating on a first come basis. The outdoor deck has many tables and benches for groups or couples. The vast winery lawn provides seemingly infinite space for blankets during busy times. Groups are welcome at the winery but we do maintain a MAXIMUM OF 3 TABLES PER GROUP, both in the Tasting Room and outdoors on the winery deck and lawn. If your party exceeds this size, please be considerate, bring your picnic blanket, and use our lawn area. Please see our groups page for more information. Common sense and courtesy are appreciated by fellow customers and winery staff when large groups are visiting the winery. It is busiest at Wolf Creek during the summer months, especially during weekend evenings. Live music nights (Monday and Wednesday, May–October) can also be busy. When in doubt, bring a picnic blanket to spread on the lawn.
Do you have a banquet facility or party room?
Please see our groups and rentals page.
Do you offer tours?
Limited tours are available. Please see our tours page for more information.

Do you serve other alcohol? Can other alcohol be brought to the Winery?
No. Our winemaker strives to make a variety of quality wines and the winery staff is trained to guide you through choosing a wine you enjoy.

What are tartrates? What is floating in my wine?!
One of the by-products of tartaric acid (naturally occurring substance in grapes), tartrates are also called potassium bitartrate, cream of tartar (used in cooking), and tartar. Excess tartaric acid crystallizes during prolonged chilling of wine. These small, innocuous crystals can appear in wine unless thoroughly removed through the cold stabilization process. Tartrates aren’t harmful and only impact the wine visually. In Germany, tartrates are called weinsteins (“wine stones”).
