Harvest Festival starts this weekend

Back to Archive

We’re celebrating an outstanding harvest... Come and join in!

The country air is heavy with the scent of ripe grapes and the pace of action at the winery fierce. Our harvest crew have settled into their positions like old pros. They’re surviving the grueling 18 hour days on a diet of coffee and donuts, luckily el Gastrónomo is here on weekends to provide real sustenance with delicious tacos. But their tired faces are still smiling. Working harvest is gratifying work, there’s always the thought that your efforts are being captured within the wine, and that wine will be enjoyed by someone 1, 3, 5 maybe 10 years from now.

But I digress, harvest is far from over and there are many more long days to come. What the crew needs now is some encouragement; why don’t you come down to the winery and show them who they’re making these wines for.

Kerri, Jessica, Raquel, Andrea, Matt, Levi, Tim, and Ross – you’re the dream team of harvest crews, your next taco is on me.
