Cask, Corks & Forks

Time: to

Join us for our 7th annual event as we pop the cork on our vintage “Cask 1018″. Noon– 5:00 PM, $6.00 per person at each winery. The cask project began as an idea in 2010 to have a continual red blend from the Grand River Valley.  Each year a percentage of the wine will be bottled and sold to make room for the next year’s harvest.  The date on the bottle represents the year it began “10″ and the year it was bottled “18″.  Each winery used a different 500 gallon oak barrel with vinifera grapes from their farm.  Join Debonne Vineyards, Ferrante Winery, Grand River Cellars, Laurello Vineyards, and St. Joseph Vineyards for an afternoon of wine sampling and tasty appetizers.
We are expanding the Cask tasting this year to highlight other vinifera wines from the Grand River Valley region, pairing them with food from our local farmers. Join us for an afternoon of wine sampling & tasty appetizers on the drive-yourself tour!
