Hosting a Private Event
Schram Vineyards is a wonderful place to host your company outings, holiday parties, celebrations, and more. Our tasting and tap room is an open and wonderful space with picture windows overlooking the vineyard and Reitz Lake. The focus for events we can host privately are on the hand-crafted wines and beers that we make right here on-site and we love to offer a true winery and brewery experience for your guests. If you are interested in renting our tasting room, grounds, or barrel room for your event, arrangements must be made no later than 30 days prior to your desired date. Please note that we do not permit group celebrations in our tasting room during our business hours, but encourage you to contact us about private space available to you.
Please note: We do not host weddings.

Yes. Please inquire as it will vary on the number of guests. We can work with you and the nature of your event to decide which option will work best (tastings, drink tickets, pre-selected bottles, cash bar). If you’d like to pre-select bottles, only two varieties may be chosen and must be purchased in a minimum of a case. Case discounts do not apply for on-site consumption. The full menu is available if you choose to do by the glass/pint or tastings. By the glass pricing ranges from $6-$10 per glass of wine or beer.

We ask that decorations be kept to a minimum and that you use only free-standing decorations. No candles or things tacked on the walls.
