2014 Winter/Spring Events
January 18th, 11:00-3:00PM - Blending with the Winemaker
You will participate and be guided through a wine blending session with the wine maker. First you will taste and evaluate the characteristics of each wine to be blended. We will group you into teams of 2. Then it is up to each team to come up with their best blend. Once each Team has perfected their blend, the Team will present their blend to the group. Finally, there will be a blind tasting to determine the best blend in the group. The winning Team wins 4 bottles of wine of their choice in the Tasting Room. Very informative and fun.
Cost: $24.95 - price include light lunch

You will be bottling a red blend that will knock your socks off!! Your job is to fill the bottle, label, insert cork, and adding a capsule down in the cellar with one of our staff members.
