Regardless of the size of your group, please make note of these additional services, fees and restrictions regarding the use of McConnell Estates Winery for your event.
- McConnell Estates Winery will provide all alcoholic beverages served at your event. Our license includes wine, sparkling wine and beer only. All events will have a hosted bar staffed by McConnell Estates personnel. Alcoholic beverage service will occur either in the tasting room area and/or on the outside deck adjacent to the tasting room building. Guests under 21 years of age will not be served and proof of ID will be required when asked.

We will provide ice for all beverages purchased through McConnell Estates. You have the option to secure non-alcoholic beverages through your caterer.
- Due to State and Federal law, no outside alcoholic beverages are allowed on the property because this is a bonded winery. Failure to comply will mean the loss of your security deposit. It also could cause McConnell Estates Winery to lose its license to operate, and the State of California to impose fines on both the winery and the person renting our venue. Only beer, wine and sparkling wine purchased from McConnell Estates can be served at the winery and all hard liquor/spirits is prohibited. There are no exceptions.
