Things to Do

Tastings, Tours, Festivals, Food and More. 



We are offering wine flights of 4 or 6 served at your table.  After your tasting, you are welcome to order wine by the glass or by the bottle to enjoy.  Let us know if you'd like wine to take home for yourself or for gifts.  Discounts are given for take-out wine.   


Our Sweet & Savory Plate features locally made cheeses, local sausage and local crackers – all gluten free!  Our Plate also includes fresh fruit and our homemade chocolates.  Add a Sweet & Savory Plate to your tasting and discover the joys of wine and food pairing.  $8 for Half Plate.  $15 for Full Plate.


Our private grounds are available for our customers and private parties.  Please arrange for formal photo sessions by calling or emailing in advance.  Photo sessions are  $25/hour.   This includes engagement photos, family photos, pet photos and more. 



We host many fun activities throughout the year including painting events, yoga, cookouts, cooking classes, dog walks, wine tasting and food pairing parties and more.   The best way to learn about our events is to add your name to our E Newsletter and we'll keep you posted about everything that happens at Famous Fossil.  See our contact page to join the e newsletter.  Or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook/ where we'll keep  you up-to-date about events, new wines and more.
