SUNDAYS AT RETZLAFF
Reservations are required for wine tasting and to enjoy the picnic space. Stemware, reserved tables, chairs, shaded areas, clean restrooms and gorgeous grounds included.
Effective July 1, Retzlaff guests may bring their own food (with their own serve-wear) to enjoy when they visit the winery. If we have one of our amazing food partners on-site, we encourage guests to purchase from them if possible. The Retzlaff shop also has snack items for sale.
With all food consumed on the property, PLEASE clean up and remove leftover food, plates, utensils, etc. when finished. Garbage and recycling bins are located along the winery lawn in several places. This reduces exposure to potential germs and keeps the property nice for other guests.
Thank You to our food vendors!
We are so very thankful to the caterers / food vendors who come on-site to sell food to Retzlaff customers, particularly during the pandemic when wineries were required to make food available for sale. We know that we have guests who enjoy buying an appetizer or meal when they visit our winery, and we were glad to support our food partners with a “no outside food” policy during the Covid restriction period.
Now that the economy has re-opened, we once again will allow our customers to choose what works best for them.
A minimum wine purchase of 1 bottle per every two persons is required to enjoy our picnic space. There are 2 seatings to choose from 11:30 – 2 and 2:30 – 5. If you wish to stay all day please reserve for both time slots, the minimum wine purchase is required for both sessions.

Certified Organic Vineyard since 2006
Retzlaff Vineyards and Estate Winery is a spectacular location. Off the beaten path yet close to town, we are part of of a historic Victorian estate. The large grounds are nestled among ancient pepper trees, beautiful landscaping and sprawling vineyards. It is a place where time slows down. People gather to relax and savor the company of good friends and good wine in a beautiful and peaceful setting.
At Retzlaff we believe exceptional wine comes from exceptional grapes. The vines have been lovingly tended for over 30 years using common sense sustainable practices which eliminate the need for chemical intervention.
No pesticides, no herbicides, no fertilizers, non GMO.
“Our wines reflect the terroir of our vineyard, the age of our vines and the character of the grapes. Our trademark is a long, elegant finish.” Gloria Taylor
