This immersive class will teach you the fundamentals of the vineyard. What happens in the vineyard each year builds the foundation for your favorite wines, and you’ll leave with a greater understanding and appreciation for this side of the industry. Educator Craig will cover everything from vine physiology to pruning. Learn how a Winemaker decides when it’s time to pick a grape, and what different grape varieties look like in the field. The seminar will finish with a seated tasting of our estate wines at the tasting room. $95 pp / $75 Wine Club Members.

Important Details:

  • The seminar will be a mix of indoors in the classroom, and out in the vineyard amongst the vines.
  • There will be some walking & moderate hiking during the vineyard portion of the seminar.
  • Be prepared to drive your vehicle on a gravel road through the vineyard. Four-wheel drive is not required.
