October 5 @ 11 a.m. : Grape Growing 101 + Tasting


Join our winemaker, Heather Neff, as she walks you through the process of growing grapes for wine production.  This class will take you into the vineyard, address the steps throughout the production season, what factors influence flavor, harvest time, and quality.  And ultimately, learn to sample grapes to choose a harvest date.

Pull all that info together in a vertical tasting of Defiance Vineyard Syrah. We will work through several vintages, exploring how seasonal growing conditions and cellaring shapes the life of a wine.

This is an introductory class.

Starts at 11:00 a.m. and will last for 1.5 - 2 hrs. depending on the depth of questions and field of participants.
