Join Peter Brehm on a full day winemaking exploration and vineyard tour and create your own wine blend!
We will kick the morning off in the vineyard where winemaking begins. Learn how decisions in the vineyard and weather variation affect the wines you drink and create as you make your way through our 22-acre Estate Vineyard. Next, we’ll go over grape processing equipment on the crush pad and into the cellar to discuss fermentation and maturation.
We will head over to the tasting room for the second half of the day for lunch and dive back into winemaking to cover blending, bottling and other important considerations. Next you will get to taste and evaluate White Salmon Vineyard and Brehm Vineyards wines.
Finally, you will have an opportunity to get your feet wet in the art wine blending as you create your own unique blend. Each attendee will cork and take home a 750-ml. bottle of their own creation. Once you’ve perfected your blend, feel free to stick around to ask any remaining winemaking questions, order grapes for your home fermentation or head out and enjoy an evening in the Gorge.
The Tour will start promptly at 10 a.m. We recommend arriving to check-in between 9:30 - 9:50 a.m. The event will take place rain or shine. Please bring or wear water resistant shoes and a warm jacket.
We encourage you to put your newly gained knowledge to work by starting your own batch of wine when you get home! Brehm Vineyards sells frozen grapes and juice year-round. Red grapes are gently destemmed with skins intact and whites are pressed and cold-stabilized. Two pails of red grapes or one pail of white grape juice will yield approximately 5 gallons of wine.
We are offering $20 off any pail (limit 2 at discounted rate) for workshop attendees. Pails can be ordered from time of registration through Friday, May 5th at the discounted rate.
Pre-order your pails by April 14th if you would like to pick them up at the workshop. Discounted shipping may be available through the group order.
