The Harvest Clinic: Experience the Winemaker’s Life

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to be a winemaker?  As the cool of autumn flows across the landscape of the northern Piedmont and liquid sunshine transforms into the harvested fruits of our labor, we invite you to immerse yourself in the winemaking experience.  This is your opportunity to go behind the scenes to have a hands-on experience with one of the top winemakers on the East Coast.  In this intense emersion course learn what happens during harvest as the grapes come off the vineyard and are processed in the cellar.  Take your hand at blending wines and find your passion in the winemaker’s lifestyle.  Then enjoy lunch and a glass of wine with the winemaker.  (Includes course materials, and a boxed lunch with a glass of wine.  $45 per person, space is limited) (9:30am-12:30 p.m.)
