Are children allowed?
We don’t encourage children on the property as our winery is a peaceful environment intended for adults. However, they’re not prohibited and must be under adult supervision at all times. Also, due to potential hazards, children are not allowed in the vineyard or behind the winery.
Are dogs allowed?
Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a leash at all times. We do ask that you keep your dogs out of the Tasting Room and please pick up after them.
Can I make a table reservation?
Yes, please contact Mallory (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Can I sell my product, or host a product party for my guests at the winery?
We ask that there is no outside solicitation at the winery during our business hours. Any products not sold by the winery must be approved by the winery prior to event date. If you would like to host a product party after hours, please contact us for more information.
What if the wine tastes bad or possibly corked?
Please return the wine as quickly as possible to the winery so we can bring it to the winemaker’s lab to be checked. We’ll happily replace your bottle at this time as well.
Can we bring a picnic?
At Sweet Cheeks on 5th we allow any food purchased from The Fifth Street Public Market but no other food is allowed.
While there is food available for purchase at the winery, visitors are allowed to bring their own food to enjoy with our wines. Memorial Day Weekend through the end of September, local food carts join us on Friday evenings from 6-8:30PM.
Is it okay to walk in the vines?
Unfortunately, we do ask you stay on the patio and away from the vineyard to prevent the spread of agricultural diseases, as well as to avoid any personal injuries.
Are any of your wines kosher?
At this time, we do not have any kosher wines.
Are you open year-round?
Yes, both locations are open to the public year-round. We are closed for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day, and we close early on both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.

How do I order wine to be shipped?
Visit our online store or call our tasting room to place an order (541) 349-9463.
When is the best time to ship?
When shipping ground anywhere east of the Rocky Mountains, it is best to ship wine in the Spring and Fall. If the temperatures are below freezing, or above 85 degrees, there is a good chance your wine will be damaged. Also, we only ship out on Monday (excluding holidays), so keep that in mind when ordering wine for upcoming holidays and events. Do note that UPS does not pick up or deliver on Saturday or Sunday.
Where can I buy Rosy Cheeks besides the winery?
Rosy Cheeks is currently sold at the winery, or behind security at the Eugene Airport.
