If you would like to come out and experience a day of harvest, we will supply the picking shears and coffee, tea, water, glasses of wine, lunch, etc. You just need to bring your work clothes and enthusiasm. If you plan to come and help out, please let us know in advance so that we can make sure that we have enough lunch for everyone that shows up. Of course we won’t be picking if it’s raining (we’ll move picking to the Sunday) –but what are the odds of that this year – honestly. We start picking around 9:00am.
2010 Pinot Noir - $19/bottle. This is the best Pinot Noir that we have produced! If you liked the 2007 Pinot Noir (that was on CBC Radio with Konrad Ejbich) – you’ll love the 2010. ‘Nough said.
