Yao Family Wines

One of the most unique and beautiful features of the main tasting area at Yao Family Wines is their oval-shaped, pure-quartz tasting bar. Available to seat more than twenty guests at a time, the quartz tasting bar is the “hub” of the main room, gorgeously back lit by a series of LED lights placed underneath the quartz itself. Serving as the centerpiece of the Quartz Tasting Bar is a one-of-a-kind glass and light installation created by Rey Viquez, from Rey3 Design Collaborative. Consisting of 200 red glass wine bottles accented by multiple pin-lights, this unique piece of art provides a stunning yet elegant accent to the room.

Yao’s Experience: Complimentary Access tasting with a bonus taste of our Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. $10 ground shipping on your purchase of six bottles or more on day of visit. Groups of eight or more require advanced reservation. Open daily, except major holidays, from 10am – 5pm, with the last tasting beginning at 4:30pm.
