Cabana reservations are for a maximum of 6 guests. If you would like a reservation for more than 6 guests, you will need to call the winery directly and speak with the Event Coordinator.
If you wish to make a reservation for a larger group of more than 12 guests, it will need to be booked in advance and through our Event Coordinator and may only be available at specific times.
