If you haven’t visited a winery during this time of year, make your plans to do it in 2011. You can start this weekend. Maryhill Harvest Fest starts today!
For the next two weekends you can be there to watch the grapes come-in, do a grape stomp, get exclusive barrel tasting, play on tournament size bocce ball court, eat and listen to live music. I just stomped grapes for the first time and it was awesome!
It’s happening all day, music starts at 1:00. Get your Harvest on at Maryhill Winery October 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th. Its a relaxing and beautiful 90 minute drive for those in the Portland or Vancouver, WA neighborhoods.
A semi-full of grapes is expected to come in on the afternoon of the 8th so if you get out to the winery early you can watch the production crew at work as they weigh, sort and send the grapes into part one of the winemaking process - It’s very impressive to see in person.
