Just a few of the common questions asked up on the bluff and our “official” answers to these frequently asked questions.
- We can’t seem to find you on our GPS!
We’ve heard this from more than few of our guests. Instead of typing in Oakglenn use Oak Glenn (space between Oak and Glenn) instead. This seems to solve the problem in the vast majority of cases. We believe over time the GPS manufacturers will correct the error in future firmware updates.
- What are the rules at OakGlenn Winery?
We do have a few. Plain and simply they revolve around principles of respect and common courtesy. First off, as a guest of the winery, we do expect you to abide by the laws of the land. Secondly we do expect you to be courteous and respectful of the staff, your fellow guests and the premises while you’re visiting us. The third rule goes right along with rule 2. All alcoholic beverages that are consumed at OakGlenn must be purchased at OakGlenn. We understand that some of you have visited other places around town and you’re lugging it all with you. Rest assured, we have no problem with that. We will happily hold your other purchases inside our tasting room and you can pick them up when you leave. If we see you drinking any alcoholic beverages that were not purchased from us, by law, we have to dump them out. If we see it more than once, you will be asked to leave the property. We do not like to do this.
One thing that needs to be made perfectly clear is OakGlenn Winery consists of both public and private areas. The public portion consists of the parking lots, the Hussman Pavilion, the stage and seating areas and the green areas surrounding it.Please do not, under any circumstances, hop the fence and wander around by the house. If you do so at the very minimum you will be asked to leave the premises immediately. Another area that is not open to the public is the vineyard itself. The vineyard is on private property.
Other than that just come and relax and enjoy tour visit.
- CCW, how do you feel about that?
We are strong supporters of the Second Amendment. Many of us have our CCW permits. We highly encourage and welcome anyone who has a valid CCW permit to feel free to exercise their right to carry on the premises. Keep in mind while you do so that you are expected to live up to the highest standards of this privilege and follow all the applicable laws to the letter.
- Why do you charge for wine tasting?
We charge $5.00 for 5 tastings to help cover the cost of the wine, staffing, and supplies that are needed to provide our services.
- Why do you have an entertainment cover charge in October?
The cover charge is to help us cover the cost of the bands. It is not included in the cost of the Trolley , or other transportation costs. They are their own business.
