Frequently Asked Wine Tasting Questions
How Does a Tasting Work?
When you visit the Fogarty Tasting Room, you'll be given a menu book that consists of three flights. A wine flight is basically a sample tasting of four-to-five wines.Your Wine Specialist will describe the wines to you and discuss the back-story behind each varietal.
Once you choose your flight, your Wine Specialist will pour you a sample taste of each wine on the menu that you've chosen. A typical pour is 1.5 ounces. A typical 5-wine flight adds up to six-to-seven ounces of wine.
Can I Order A Glass or Bottle of Wine?
Yes, you may consume wine by the bottle or glass on our outside patio. We don't allow consumption by the glass or bottle inside the tasting room.
We do not serve wines by the glass or bottle after 4:30 pm.
Can We Bring Food?
Yes, you are welcome to bring food to eat on the patio just outside the tasting room. Food is not allowed in the tasting room. If you are a wine club member, you are welcome to enjoy the members-only tables by our pond. Please request a pond key from your tasting room associate.
Can We Bring Pets?
We have a no pets policy in our tasting room, for, as adorable as your animal must be, some tasters will have allergies, or simply not appreciate an animal in the tasting room. Animals must be tied securely outside the tasting room. If you need water for your pet, just ask!
Are You Child-Friendly?
We are child-friendly, but we request that you bring some books or an iPad for them to play with while you're enjoying our wine. This will be greatly appreciated by our staff, our guests, and your children. Trust us on this one.
Do You Ship Wine?
We ship wine to most states that allow direct shipping of wine. We require that an adult of legal drinking age be present when the wine is delivered.
My State Doesn't Allow Direct Shipping. Can You Help?
If you live in a state that doesn't allow direct shipping of wine, we are happy to pack your wines so you can check them in as baggage. We also sell bubble-wrapped "wine skins" so you can pack a few bottles in your suitcase.
