Thank you for inquiring for a tasting experience at Cuda Ridge Wines. Our Vineyard Patio is open for wine tastings, or wine by the bottle, but we do request that you make a reservationUpon receipt of your request, a hospitality staff member will get back to you to confirm your reservation within 24 hours. Please note: Your reservation is not booked until your reservation is confirmed. 

Due to the winter weather approaching and the lack of predictability with rain, we may need to reschedule or cancel Vineyard Patio tasting reservations after they have been confirmed. This would only happen if the weather is unsuitable for tastings (rain, strong wind gusts, or severe cold). If the weather is unsuitable for tastings, then a hospitality staff member will inform you 24 hours before the tasting is scheduled. Thank you for your understanding and continued support with these unprecedented times!

Stay safe and Happy Holidays! We look forward to seeing you soon!
