Title: Let the Grape Speak!
Type of Education: Nurturing Nature for a Natural Wine
Wine Education Description:
We will be sharing with you, who we are and how we started, how and what we grow; and how we give back. How being a local family farm in Clarksburg has shaped our purpose and our products? How our “hands off” approach to provide a natural wine, lets the grape speak. Our wine education will provide an insight to what sustainable farming is, how dry farming affects growth, and what it means to use native yeast. We look forward to sharing our passion and hope you will be enticed to try our locally estate grown and produced family wines!

Wine Education Description:
Ever wonder how wine develops flavors such as toast, spice, or vanilla? It's all in the barrel aging process.

During this interactive class, you will learn about different style barrels and the type of oak used to create them. In addition, you will learn how each type of oak influences the wine in different ways. We will also discuss the different grain and toast levels of oak and how each level alters the aging process. Best of all, you can taste for yourself the side by side differences of oak influence when sampling multiple barrels of our 2017 Ancient Vine Zinfandel.
