WE ID EVERYBODY. 0 to 150, everybody. Rather than attempt to differentiate who looks over or under a certain age (at the risk of offending people who may be sensitive about their appearance) we have found it simpler and most polite to ask everyone for proper identification. Therefore, you MUST present a valid, current (not expired) form of ID prior to consuming our wines.
