Yes, we do, we just don't post it because it is always evolving and changing with vintages and wineries. I would be happy to email it to you if you would like.

Hi Barbara, I am sorry - we don't have a Happy Hour. We did attempt it at one point but the guests' reception of it wasn't as enthusiastic as we had hoped. Now, we just keep our prices reasonable throughout the day.
