Sunset Hills Vineyard – Winemaker For A Day
Imagine yourself throwing a dinner party for some friends and colleagues. Everyone is seated and the carefully-prepared meal is about to be served. You walk over to your wine rack and retrieve a very specific bottle of wine and bring it back to the table. You remove the cork and serve the wine, all the while being very careful to shield the label from your guests as you fill their glasses. Suddenly one of the first-poured guests exclaims: “Wow, this is delicious! Who made it?” You try to conceal your excitement, but you eventually give in as a prideful smile slowly washes over your face and you inform the table: “I did.”
Register now for this very rare opportunity to make your own wine! Sunset Hills Vineyard winemakers will provide you with everything you need: blending tools, glassware, instructions, and a selection of unfinished wine for you to combine to your specifications into a blend of your liking. They will make more of your wine and bottle it, and after a few days you can pick it up, take it home, and “WOW” your wino friends with it.
This special event fills up quickly. Reservations are $40 per person and the event occurs on Friday March 13th from 7pm-9pm and on Sunday, March 15th at 1pm as well as 3pm.
Reserve your spot now, Winemaker for a Day is always one of Sunset Hills Vineyards most popular events, and space is limited.
