Picking Party: Harvesting concord and enjoying smoked ham, green beans, and potatoes

Our grapes are ripening right on schedule! We invite you to join us as we pick the crop that will become next year's new wines. Those who have joined us before know that we treat each picking day like its own harvest celebration. Family, neighbors, and friends old and new gather from 9:00 AM–1:00 PM picking grapes, sharing stories and enjoying each others company. New pickers are invited to arrive a little early (8:00-8:30 AM) for coffee, doughnuts and an explanation/demonstration of picking skills.

We suggest bringing a hat, sunscreen, bug spray or a light jacket depending on the weather. We'll provide the gloves, picking tools, and buckets. The payoff for all the work comes when we finish and celebrate over lunch, fresh-pressed grape juice, and wine
