Parties at Knob Hall Winery
Knob Hall’s tasting room and event area are currently located in our 1850’s bank barn. The upper level of the barn is heated and will accommodate approximately 100-120 people. The feeling is rustic, cozy and authentic.
We have plans to fully renovate the barn to make it even more charming and comfortable. When we complete our work, the tasting room will be located in the lower portion of the barn and the full upper floor will be available for events. If you are interested in planning an event for late 2011 or 2012, we will keep you apprised about how our renovations are progressing. The barn’s event room, when completed, will accommodate 120 – 200.
Knob Hall also has some nice areas for outdoor events. Small groups can gather under our 300 year-old oak tree for picnics, tastings or receptions. Or, there are larger areas where a tent can be placed to accommodate a large party. There is plenty of field parking.
