Hi Rick, thanks for your review! All of our glass pours are 5oz (a standard glass pour size in the wine world). However, looks can be deceiving in our glassware. If we filled our wines all the way to the top in our white glass...More

While there's food, this is more like a brew pub than a restaurant. Limited menu but a very helpful staff who will point you in the right direction for pairing ciders with what they have in their menu.
