Tasting Room

The cozy tasting room at Winery at Kindred Point features two fireplaces: a wood fire burning and a gas fire burning. You'll enjoy comfortable seating of leather sofas and padded chairs. The tasting room is in a renovated horse barn so the feel of warm wood siding surrounds you on all the walls. They don't allow pets in the tasting room except for the winery dog Oscar. He gets to enjoy the gas fireplace after hours.

The new space also has an abundance of indoor seating for you to enjoy.  Invite your friends, bring some food, and catch up on life over a bottle of wine.  On the slightly warmer days, you can enjoy the heat lamps, fire pits, and outdoor fireplace.

Walk just a few steps into the tasting room and you can feel the Barren Ridge difference.  It’s relaxed.  It’s a place you want to spend time with friends and family. Relax, eat together, and enjoy the wine. The transformed apple packing barn makes for a rustic and cozy tasting room that features the original ceiling and a large stone wood-burning fireplace. The bar is made of reclaimed wood from the original barn. It’s a winery where even people who are unfamiliar with the place feel at ease and a sense of warmth.
