Cellar Dining




The Wine Cellar Kitchen bustles with reserved dinner parties prepared by our Best Chefs; special events; and Chef Walter Royal’s Teaching Kitchen, a program designed to bring his vast expertise to novice cooks and apprentice chefs. With the completion of the Wine Cellar Kitchen, another chapter in the long, rich history of the Angus Barn began and Thad’s lifelong vision was fulfilled. Henrietta Mears wrote that hospitality should have no other nature than love. In the loving spirit of Thad and Alice Eure, welcome to their Wine Cellar Dining Rooms!

Making a Reservation

Choose Thad's or Alice's Room and Dinner Selections with Innovative Gourmet Cuisine. As host, you will select a gourmet menu from the cuisine of our Executive Chef, Walter Royal, and his staff. The Cellar Master will pair wines with each course to compliment your dining experience. Clad in tuxedos, your wine cellar service staff will offer your guests silent white-glove service and cater to their every need.

The dinner is a "fixed menu", meaning all guests have the same item for each course, but hosts may pick their menu with confidence, knowing that we can handle any special dietary needs that will suit their guests. Please be aware that selected accompaniments may change at the chef's discretion, without notice, to ensure freshness and availability.

Wine Selections
The Cellar Sommelier pairs wines to match each course perfectly. Hosts are quite welcome to assist in the wine selections. There is a per bottle surcharge if the host selects a wine that exceeds the wine allowance.

Pre-dinner Social
The host may choose to offer bar drinks to guests during the social or throughout the evening. The wine cellar bars offer a choice of full spirits, beer & wine. Bar offerings are at the host desecration. There is no additional charge for the bar or bartender. Drinks are charged based on consumption.

Final Arrangements
The final count is required at least 48 hours prior to the party.

Payment Methods
We accept all major credit cards and cash.

Wine Cellar Tours
The Angus Barn owner may choose to bring a few guests to the cellar for a private tour. These tours will be done discreetly and are not available to the general public.
