Self-guided Tours

We love spontaneity, so stop by any day of the week for a self-guided tour of the winery and vineyards. There’s no need to call ahead since we’ve created an educational-go at your own pace-tour. Informational placards are spaced throughout our catwalk which circles around our winery production area. Finish your tour with a wine tasting in our panoramic tasting room which is literally suspended above our barrel cave and tank rooms.

 

Private Barrel Tasting

Taste our wines right from the barrels with our winemaker to get the ultimate wine tour experience. Winemaker Brad Hansen will personally enlighten you on our wines and the wine making process with this special tour and tasting. Learn from the expert on how our wines are made as Brad discusses his wine making philosophies and techniques.

Barrel Tastings require advance, pre-paid reservations. Cost is $75 per person. Includes light hors d'oeuvres.

 

Bus and Limo Tours

Bus tours of any size are always welcome at Prince Michel. Your tour begins with a glass of wine and light hors d’oeuvres. A private tour of the production facilities and vineyards (season dependent) is followed by a seated wine tasting conducted by one of our trained wine shop assistants. Our group tours are customized to your group’s needs, so call ahead and speak with one of our staff to create a tour package full of exceptional wines and great fun.

Call for reservations. Pricing varies depending on the number of guests and needs.

 

Private Tastings and Tours

For those of you who plan ahead, give us a call or send us an email for a private tour and wine tasting. A private tour allows you to get a hands-on education of the winemaking process from one of our Prince Michel “experts”. We can tailor private tours to include the vineyards and production areas or keep the focus on tasting wines.  Pricing and details below.
