A Harvest Experience: the Winemaker's View
|Date:||Sat, Sep 14, 2013|
|Time||10:00 AM to 2:00 PM|
Join Amphora’s winemaker/owner, Rick Hutchinson, for an in-depth grape-to-glass harvest experience.
You'll start with a walking tour of Timber Crest Vineyards with Rick, where he'll discuss the measurements of ripeness that lead to the timing of harvest. After learning about the vineyard and the fruit, you'll head back to the winery, where Rick will go explain the wine making process from crushing to barrel. Your tasting experience begins with the grape, then the fresh juice and fermenting must, to the 2012 vintage out of the barrel, and then the current release wine of the same varietal. Over a four hour experience, you'll learn about the many variables and multitude of decisions involved in the crafting of great wine. Light snacks and wine tasting included!
This exclusive time with the winemaker is limited to 20 people.
21 years of age and over only. By advance purchase only!
