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.

NOTE on Attire: 
Comfortable walking shoes and shorts or jeans; remember your hats and sun-screen if a sunny day!
