Hard to believe that harvest is here! Next Sat. Sept. 17 and 24 we will begin our 2016 Vintage Harvest. The excitement is really building and we have had dozens of people expressing great enthusiasm about helping us make it happen. Come and join us. Watch our Cassel Vineyards Facebook page for updates.
For those who are unfamiliar with our picking parties, here is a brief explanation. We get together at 9 AM and work for a couple of hours picking grapes, making friends, solving the world's problems and administering and getting psychotherapy. The weather can be cool in the morning and warm and sunny by afternoon so you need to wear layers. If you have a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses they can also come in handy. The only other thing you might need is a bottle of water. We will provide the gloves and the picking tools and show you how to pick like a pro. We usually pick until 12 or 1:00 and then break for a lunch that we serve to our whole crew. The meals are homemade and we serve them to you with love and appreciation for the work you have helped us to accomplish. While you enjoy your lunch you can watch us crush the grapes, squeeze the juice and make the wine. Kids and grownups alike enjoy sampling the grape juice.
