We love to have guests to our property! Over the years we have found that the best entertaining is done outside; where we can enjoy the fabulous views that abound at Lagniappe Peak. With that in mind, we have developed a few special spots which we try to feature!
The Party Pavilion
This is the home for our signature harvest event; Steak & Grape! The party pavilion overlooks our vegetable gardens and pond; and is adjacent to block 2 of our vineyard. It is perfect for dining al fresco and we sequence the evening so we can enjoy the spectacular sunset with our dinner.
The party pavilion is incorporated into a larger terraced venue; where we have hosted outdoor movies and charity fundraisers in the past. We also have a waterfall and water plume to add to the ambience of the setting.
In 2014 we began clearing block 11 in our vineyard and quickly realized it had the most spectacular views on the property. It was an easy decision to incorporate a gazebo for enjoying a bottle of wine with friends at the end of a visit. Surrounded by Cabernet Sauvignon vines and cooling afternoon breezes; this is a "go to" destination!
Outdoor Kitchen & Screen Room
One of the staples of wine country living is easy entertaining, featuring a meal prepared over the grill. Since we live in a high fire danger area, we tend to favor utilizing a gas grill. We do have a Green Egg smoker for those occasions when only a wood fire will do!
Our micro climate allows outdoor dining from Spring through Fall. Our local insects, however, are not quite so accommodating! We created an informal screened dining area which provides relief and allows us to enjoy unparalleled views and sunsets.
