Group Experiences

From bachelorette parties to bus groups, we want to make your experience special.

Group Tastings

Our goal is to provide the best possible service to every guest. That means having the staff and resources to serve one guest or 100 guests. If you are planning to bring a group of 10 or more, we appreciate you letting us know so we can better prepare.

To receive the best possible service during the summer months, we recommend your group arrive during our non-peak times of Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., or 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. Groups arriving for tastings Friday through Sunday should expect a wait while spots open up at our complimentary tasting bars.

For private groups of 20 or more (if you are arriving on a bus, please refer to the bus group information below) who provide advance notice and arrive during non-peak times, we offer a free, private tasting experience with one of our associates.

If you do not provide advanced notice, you will be served as any other guest, by waiting your turn at the tasting bar. To provide advance notice of a group’s arrival, please contact our Tasting Room at 605.574.3898.

Group Dining Options

We welcome groups to join us at the Prairie Berry Kitchen! If you have 10 or more in your group, please contact the Winery in advance by calling 877.226.9453 so that we may prepare as much as possible for your arrival. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. We do not accept reservations.

Do you have a group and wish to enjoy a private area? Our recently completed events space, The Homestead, allows us to host large groups for lunch and offer a complimentary sampling all in a private and spacious environment. If you have 20 guests or more, contact our Events department for information regarding the available menus by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.

We can best accommodate bus groups Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. We are unable to serve bus groups most weekends. Some fees apply to cover additional staff, if required.Here are some guidelines:
