Winemaker's Dinner -
2024 May Wine Release Celebration

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 Friday, May 17 at 7:00PM for an evening celebrating the release of our new vintage of May Wine. Each course of this special Germanic-inspired multi-course meal will be expertly paired with Johnson Estate's May Wine and other wines.

Menu below!
