Holiday in the Vineyards

Join us for some holiday cheer as we taste some big bold reds, a barrel sampling, and shop amongst local vendors. Soleil Pizza will be on-site selling gourmet wood-fired pizzas.

Aroma Bar and Blind Oak Barrel Taste-Off
Wednesday, December 7th
Embark on an educational seminar where you will blindly smell through 12 scents that can be found in McGrail Wine!  Follow the blind tasting with a side-by-side of the same Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged in 3 different oaks.  See if you can guess the difference between American, French, and Hungarian Oak?  This 2-hour seminar will be a seated, side-by-side tasting of 2 sets of 3 Cabernets.  Great evening to taste the 2013 vintage of the James Vincent, A Jo Elet - “The Good Life”, and the Patriot side-by-side.

Wine Blending Camp at McGrail
Sunday, December 18th
Do you love wine?  Great, then try your hand at being a winemaker!  The group will be divided into teams and each team will blend 4 different barrels to come up with the best blend.  Our winemaker will be giving tips and answering questions along the way.  After you have tasted the wines, created a blend, and carefully measured your percentages used, you will design a label, and sell us on your wine. Winemaker, Mark Clarin, will decide on the best tasting wine and the most creative label.  Enjoy a 2-hour educational, hands-on blending/tasting seminar.  If you would like to order a delicious sandwich from Harvest Bakery, please let us know and we will send you an order form($14/sandwich).
