WINE TASTING, VISITING POLICIES, AND GUIDELINES 2020
UPDATED OCTOBER 2020
At Miramar Vineyards we are proud of our beautiful grounds and warm hospitality; we are very grateful for your visit. Please realize we are a working vineyard and winery. Keep in mind we are a private establishment designed for adults and not a public park or playground.
The safety of our guests and employees is our first priority. To ensure that your time with us is enjoyable, and to manage the many types of guests and groups who would like to visit us, we have the following practices and policies in place.
We ask all Miramar Vineyards guests to read and observe our Visiting Policies and Guidelines:
TASTING ROOM, PATIO, LAWN AND BOCCE AREAS
- Tasting Room - Please check in at the Tasting Room prior to seating when you arrive so we can say hello and know that you are here.
