Located in a late 1800's church, we are unique amongst our counterparts. Visit us for wine and beer tastings from Lost Kingdom Brewery, during normal business hours. Our space is available for wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, private events, business events, and we also host several large holiday events throughout the year. We are located one block North of the 96 A and State Route 414 junction. Inside the church behind the ice cream stand. OUR TASTING ROOM IS CLOSED DURING THE MONTHS OF JANUARY AND FEBRUARY.
