Experience Our
Chronos Observatory

The Chronos Observatory
What is often mistaken for a silo on the side of our renovated barn, is in fact the Chronos Observatory. Inside the observatory is a deep space telescope capable of viewing interstellar bodies in significant detail.

We will be planning events using the telescope and invite astronomy enthusiasts to contact us about booking their events at the winery.
