Time to Kick Off Harvest!
Join us for this fun filled kick off to HARVEST! For those of you who’ve joined us before you know it’s a great time and for those of you who are thinking about joining us… please do! If you like wine & food & fun you will love it.
From the time guests arrive to the time the buses pull out this action packed evening is one that will leave you filled with a love for all things wine. Oh yes, and come prepared to dance! No better way than to ring in the season than on the dance floor.
This year we are celebrating our DECADE OF DESTINY – We are celebrating ten years as a winery!
Our theme is old Hollywood Glamour – think classic Hollywood, red carpet, big band music…you get the idea. Since we will be in the vineyard we suggest that you keep your “glam” comfortable.

Just remember, the hotels fill up fast so book early.
Dinner will begin at 5:30 pm. The menu consists of a carnivorous combo of steak and lobster tails prepared by Chef Katie Geissler. There is no assigned seating so upon arrival we encourage guests to claim your dinner table. It’s a fun loving free for all!
Upon arrival you will receive 4 tasting scrip to be used for the wine tasting. We’ve chosen to wait to release the fall wine club wines until October 24th to alleviate confusion so this year you’ll be getting to try some old favorites as well as getting a sneak peak at the upcoming releases. We will also be selling glass pours from our “Keg” program.
At the party we will be tasting wine from 4-5:30. In addition we will have numerous library wines available for both glass and bottle purchases at our no-host bar throughout the entire event. Watch for HARVEST PARTY SPECIALS that will only be available for purchase at the event.
Both glass and bottle purchases will be available at our no-host bar throughout the entire event so grab a bottle for your table!
We love to throw in a couple fun “activities” for guests to participate in so this year we will be rolling out a few of the favorites and then including some newbie’s to spice things up! Most of the activities are at no cost to you but we do have three events that we will be charging for, as they will be receiving larger “prizes” and require a little more manpower to pull off.
