We only have a few spots left for our Winemaker Educational Seminar on Saturday, September 17th. Associate Winemaker Jeff Strekas and Enologist Drew Nenow will both be taking time out of their busy harvest schedules to go over the intricacies and efforts that go into a successful harvest.
We will start the morning out at ONX Estate Vineyard with a walk through the vineyard, tasting fruit straight from the vine and learning the dynamics of each individual varietal. Jeff and Drew will then take you through the process of what goes into a pick when the fruit is ready to come off the vine. This is also your opportunity to learn the aspects of calling a pick, how a picking crew is assembled, and the differences in ripening patterns of different varietals.
After the vineyard tour, we will then head over to our production facility in Tin City. Here we will see the process of turning fruit into wine. Get your hands on some processing equipment and geek out on cold soaking, inoculation, and fermentation. Our final stop of the seminar will be in the barrel chai where the wine “rests” before bottling. Learn about our oak program and taste a few samples of what's coming down the pipeline.
After the seminar join Jeff and Drew for lunch on the patio catered by Thomas Hill Organics and get the rest of your harvest questions answered.
This is a very limited event with only 20 spaces available. To purchase tickets click here. We hope to see you for Harvest!
