Help us Pick some Zinfandel
We have a bit of Zinfandel left to pick and we would like to share the experience with you! Afterwards, we will provide our typical winery lunch of rotisserie chicken tacos for all to enjoy. Please bring clippers if you have them. This Sunday the 30th. 9am. 2 hours of picking. Reservation required.
The "BIG CRUSH" is October 6 & 7, & we are having a "Punch-Down" Party; also we will be giving winemaking demos and tasting wine in the early stages of fermentation - right out of the punching bins. Live music and Nonna's Oxtail Bolognese with Pasta. 50% discount on select wines.
