THE ONLY EVENT OF ITS KIND IN MINNESOTA!
Join our Harvest CReW! Register Today for the Fall Harvest Experience!
$25/person. Includes shuttled transportation to and from the Winery and Vineyard, a catered meal, as well as coupons to use on Winery purchases.
**October dates are now tentative! If you choose to sign up for the October dates, please be prepared to pick an alternative date if we think we will have all the grapes picked by the last September weekend.
As the warmth of summer begins to wane, our grapes reach the critical balance of sweetness and acidity, signaling the start of the harvest. At their peak of ripeness, we pluck the grapes from the vine with our very own hands to preserve the integrity of the fruit and to ensure our wine is of the highest quality. It’s an age-old tradition that connects us back to the earth and to simpler times.
Cannon River Winery invites you to join us for the Fall harvest beginning mid-September. Your journey for this exclusive event begins at our Winery. From there, we will transport you to our nearby Vineyard, where you’ll get the unique opportunity to pick grapes by hand amongst the lush rolling hills of the picturesque Sogn Valley. You’ll learn about the history of the vineyard and the art of growing grapes as you breathe in the crisp Autumn air and feel the warm Indian summer sun on your back.
After working up a hearty appetite, you’ll dine alfresco with the gorgeous vineyard as a backdrop. You’ll be treated to a well-earned catered meal.
Once you’ve had a chance to relax, we’ll travel back to our historic winery, where you’ll see our experienced winemaker and production staff in action as they de-stem and crush the grapes from the day’s harvest. Relax with a glass of wine and enjoy live music on the weekends.
Your grape picking experience wouldn’t be complete without a taste of the wines you helped to create. In the Spring, we’ll invite you back for an exclusive tank tasting so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Reservations are required for this exclusive event. The harvest fills up quickly, so please register today.
At just $25 per person, this is an incredible value for a day of fun, education and wine tasting!
Participants must be 18 or older. 21 or older for wine tasting - ID required at check-in. No pets or outside beverages are allowed. No Refunds.
