Wine Making Day

£120.00

.

Become a winemaker!

.

This is a great experience for you or a friend to become a winemaker. From our vineyard you will be able to pick the grapes, crush the fruit, and finish off with 6 bottles of wine.

.

Your winemaking experience is split into 2 mornings. On the first day, 26th October you will meet the winemaker at 10am, for coffee, and discuss how to harvest the grapes, and the first stages of winemaking. At about 10:30, you and a guest will go out into the vineyard and harvest enough fruit to make your wine. Depending on the year, the grapes will either be Pinot Noir, Rondo or Dornfelder.

.

After bringing the grapes to the winery, with help, you’ll be able to put your grapes through the crusher, into a fermenting bin. You’ll then be able to add yeast to get the ferment started.

.

To finish the day, you’ll have a tasting of our award-winning wines.

.

The second morning will take place on the 22nd February, where you will be able to filter and bottle your wine, ready to take home.

.

If you are available, and wish to, you can get involved with pressing the grapes to extract the wine. This will be done on the 2nd November.

.

During the winter your wine will be monitored as well as racked, to prepare if for bottling.

.

You are more than welcome to bring a “helper” along for the day.

.

This experience will also be available in 2020, but dates are not fixed yet.   

A voucher will be posted out to the recipient. Free Postage.
