About The Event
In Fall we'll head to one of the most scenic places to drink the best Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Chardonnays being produced in the USA and some would say the world! Not only will the weather be perfect, but we will arrive just near the end of harvest. Meaning the option to be involved with picking grapes, working in the cellar or foot stomping grapes has never been more real. We'll have personalized service with the region’s best winemakers, owners and chefs. The real story will be the intimate group in a laid back, high end travel experience like no other.
The agenda includes.......
Cheese and wine tasting with Dick and Jenny Dore, owners of Foxen Winery.
Tastings from barrels and current vintages with Brian Talley, owner of Talley Vineyards.
Tasting and vineyard visit with Matt McKinney one of the top new kids making stellar wines in the area.
Grape picking and grape stomping with Chad Melville of Melville Winery followed by lunch on the crushpad.
Picking and crushing grapes for Heathen Wine, "Cuvee Cremisi" blend 2022. (Free Labor)
A hands on wine blending session with Andrew Murray of Andrew Murray Vineyards.
Tasting and homemade pizza at the home of Jeff Nelson, owner of Liquid Farms.
And a Grande Finale "La Paulee" dinner at Industrial Eats!!!!!
Many other surprises, wines and experiences to come.....
