Pinnacle Ridge Policies

Parties larger than 6 are welcome ONLY in our upstairs barn space during our music events. We will not accommodate 6+ groups in the Tasting Room at any day or time, due to its small and cozy nature. We would like to avoid an unpleasant situation for you, the other customers, and ourselves, in the event of us having to ask you to leave. Buses, limos, and commercial vehicles are not allowed on our property. This includes parking anywhere in front of the facilities.

We have a new bar in the barn, which includes a ten tap system for beer and cider; we’ll also be pouring a wide variety of mixed drinks; and of course Pinnacle Ridge wines by the bottle or glass! Additionally, nonalcoholic beverages, such as soft drinks and bottled water, will be available for sale.

PLEASE NOTE: Pinnacle Ridge Winery has been forced to implement a new policy regarding outside beverages on the property, due to individuals bringing in alcoholic beverages in unmarked containers. 

No outside beverages of any kind will be permitted on the property of Pinnacle Ridge Winery. Customers must dispose of all beverages before entering the premises. Any customer on the property with their own beverage will be asked by our security team to dispose of the beverage or leave the property.
