Winemaker's Dinner -
2023 May Wine Release Celebration

We're sorry, this event has sold out.

In Germany, the coming of spring is celebrated on May Day with outdoor dancing and imbibing a white wine punch ("Mai Wein Bowle") made with sparkling white wine, bunches of fresh sweet woodruff ( or "Waldmeister" as it is called in Germany), and fresh strawberries. Winemaker Jeff Murphy's May Wine is our "bottled" version of this spring treat.

Join us at Johnson Estate on Saturday, April 29th at 7:00PM for an evening celebrating the new release of our 2023 May Wine. Each course of this special Germanic-inspired multi-course meal will be especially curated with Johnson Estate's May Wine and other wines.
