NOTE: HARVEST UPDATE - PINOT NOIR
Mother Nature is fickle
We just learned late yesterday, after winemaker, Jeff Murphy tested the Pinot Noir grapes, that they must be picked well before September 23rd - the hot and wet weather as made the grapes ripen much more quickly than last year.
SO, the Harvest & Picnic will be amended - depending on what grapes need to be picked on September 23rd. Jeff Murphy will be there to explain how to determine "grape ripeness" and guests will have an opportunity for a vineyard walk and "grape tastings". Picnic, with wines, to follow.
9:30am - Arrive at the winery. Drive to our Pinot Vineyard. Register & pick up clippers. Have a coffee and a croissant!
10:00am - Pick grapes!
12:00 Noon - Enjoy a Harvest Picnic. We'll have tables set up on the ridge. The menu includes Perrier, Freelings Creek Pinot Noir & other wines, Cheese & Charcuterie Board, Cold Tomato Soup Shots, and main course (TBD), Baguettes, and Apple Tart.
