We are temporarily CLOSED to prevent the spread of COVID-19
It’s probable you’ve heard, but the Governor of California has issued a statement asking all wineries to no longer participate in any tasting activities for an unspecified amount of time, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are saddened to be writing this, but we have to close the tasting room temporarily. Right now the plan is for us to remain closed to the public for the rest of the month of March, as we are following the guidelines set forth by Gavin Newson. We will likely have more information in the next few days and will keep you all updated via Instagram, Facebook, and email. We hope the spread of the Coronavirus ceases quickly and we can get back to having you at the winery and having a sense of normalcy soon. Until then, we hope you all stay safe and healthy.

We are a family-friendly and pet-friendly winery…
We are a family-friendly and pet-friendly winery, but we do ask that pets remain on a leash for the entirety of their visit and that they are left at home on event days. Children are also welcome, but are expected to be supervised during their stay. We appreciate your understanding.
8 or more people enjoy a space dedicated to them and a special tasting.
Buy a bottle of wine and enjoy a game of bocce with up to 8 friends.

For an appointment, please send us a reservation request
BOCCE BALL BOOKINGS
Join us for a game of bocce to enjoy unbeatable panoramic views of the Livermore Valley. We believe this game can be best appreciated with a glass or a bottle shared with friends, so we do not offer court-side tastings.
$10/person, up to 8 people. Complimentary for wine club members. Advanced reservations are not required, but are certainly recommended.
Bocce reservations are available from 12-1:25pm, 1:30-2:55pm, and 3-4:25pm. For an appointment, please send us a reservation request
PICNIC ON THE FRONT LAWN
If you would like to enjoy our panoramic views in a more casual setting, you may choose to bring lawn chairs and blankets for a picnic on our front lawn. The lawn is available on a first-come, first-served basis and does not have any shade or rain protection. You are welcome to enjoy a glass of wine and hang out with friends during our business hours of 12-4:30pm. Outside food is welcome, but non-McGrail wines and outside alcohol are not allowed on our property.
There is no fee to picnic on the front lawn.
SOCIAL EVENT GROUP PACKAGE
This package is for groups of up to 40 people who would like to spend the day soaking in the scenic views on our vineyard patio or our front lawn. This option allows you a private area set for your party that you can utilize from noon until 4pm. We will provide round tables for seating and banquet tables for gifts or food, both with linens, plus chairs for guests, pop-up tents for shade, stemless glasses for your guests to use, water cups, and iced water. We will have your area all set up for you when you arrive and you will have up to one hour prior to your start time to set up any decorations. This option requires a non-refundable facility fee paid up front and the purchase of one or two cases of wine (dependent upon number of guests), and tends to be the most suitable option for bridal or baby showers.
Group of 6-20 people – $250 facility fee and a minimum purchase of 1 case of wine
Group of 21-40 people – $350 facility fee and a minimum purchase of 2 cases of wine
