We also offer regular teaching and play on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning at 5:30pm for $7.00 per person for non-members. We also have a pickleball machine available for practice and skills development.

The Winery Membership will include two members for $63 per month (a 10% savings) or four members for $120 per month (a 14% savings) for the first year.
