What are your hours?
You can find on property hours here or at roundbarn.com. We are open year-round, expect for major holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
What is your maximum group size?
Six is the magic number! Our maximum group size per party is 6. We are unable to accommodate groups larger than 6 currently, even if splitting into smaller groups due to capacity restrictions and potential wait times.
But what if my group size is 10?
Again, maximum group size is 6. Plain and simple. Again, we are unable to accommodate groups larger than 6 currently, even if splitting into smaller groups due to capacity restrictions and potential wait times.
Are facemasks required at your properties?
Yes, masks are required at all of our properties. Masks are required to enter and while walking to and from your table. They can be removed once you get to your table. Please also wear your mask when walking to use the restroom. We also ask that guests wear their masks correctly - over the mouth and nose.
Are there any other COVID-19 rules or mandates I should know about?
We are following ALL Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Guidelines & Orders. To best prepare yourself, please review our Pandemic Plans & Procedures.
Can I make a reservation?
Round Barn Tasting Room in Union Pier and the Round Barn Filling Station does not allow reservations. These locations are first-come, first-serve. At the Round Barn Estate, you can currently make a reservation for our Igloos at the Village.
What is your current bus and limo policy?
Due to COVID-19 and capacity restrictions, we are only able to accept groups from the following tour companies, with a maximum group size of 8 people: Harbor Country Adventures, Grape & Grain Tours, Hops Noggin, and South Shore Brew Bus. NO OTHER COMPANIES WILL BE PERMITTED AT THIS TIME. For additional information about this new policy, please visit our Bus & Limo Policy here.
Are you kid-friendly?
As a family-owned business, we love kids! Well-behaved kids are always welcome to our properties but need to be closely attended to by parents at all times. We do not have a playground or offer activities for children, so please consider bringing quiet activities to keep them entertained. Children are not permitted in our Guided Tasting or The Chalet experience this winter.
What about dogs? Can I bring my furry friend?
We are dog-friendly at the Round Barn Estate. You can also bring your furry friend to our outdoor patio Round Barn Filling Station and the Round Barn Tasting Room (sorry - furry friends aren't allowed inside). We ask that your furry friend is on a leash and you pick up after them while you are visiting us. Because the Round Barn Public House is mainly indoors, we do not allow dogs at this location.
At the Round Barn Estate or Round Barn Tasting Room in Union Pier, we will not allow dogs inside the igloos at this time.
Do you have food available at the Round Barn Estate?
During the winter months, we do not have food at the Estate. Guests can order food online from the Round Barn Brewery and Public House Wednesday-Sunday and have it delivered to you at Round Barn Estate. Ask your server for additional details!
I want to come to the Round Barn Estate on Saturday or Sunday, and participate in a wine tasting. What do your weekend tastings look like?
We do not offer "general wine tastings" on the weekends at the Estate, (flights are not available on the weekends). We do offer our Guided Tasting Experience on the weekend. Reservations are required. For more information about our Guided Tasting Experience, please visit this page.
Do you offer tours or can we go into the Round Barn?
Due to COVID-19, we have suspended our MHG Trolley Experience for 2020, and we are currently not allowing guests inside the Estate barn due to capacity restrictions. All tastings are currently outside.
Can I bring outside alcohol?
Outside alcohol is strictly prohibited by Michigan Liquor Control anywhere on Round Barn Estate property.
Will you have live music this upcoming weekend?
Live music at the Round Barn Estate is from May to October 31. We do not have live music in the winter months, but please continue to look back at our Events page in case this changes.
