Nighttime Picking Party!

Friday, Oct. 4 from 6-9:00 we will hold another of our often requested nighttime picking parties @ Cassel Vineyards. If you have never participated, join us for a fun and entertaining evening in the vineyard. We will provide the picking tools and grapes all you need to bring is your headlamp, a few layers of cloths, warm, dry boots, a jacket and a sense of adventure! We will be picking Vidal Blanc under the moonlight in the cool, autumn air to ensure that the white grape juice remains chilled prior to fermentation.

If you would like to start before 6:00 or work after 9:00, we will be happy to accommodate extended hours. We do plan to enjoy a warm fire, wine and toasted marshmallows and s’mores at the end of the first row. Bring your kids if you think they would enjoy this activity as it is meant to be fun and enjoyable for all ages.

We hope you can make it, but we have several other picking dates to choose from if you can’t. Hope to see you in the vines from 9-1:00 one of the following days.
