When you Adopt-A-Vine, you become a member of an elite group with a common interest in the joyous events associated with vineyard life. These include planting parties, wine tasting, dining events, harvest parties, and more.

Watch the vines grow during the spring and summer months and bring your friends and family to see your vine; help pick grapes at harvest time (usually early August or September); see how they are pruned during the winter and finally drink the wine from your vine.

The Adopt-A-Vine program is the perfect gift for the wine lover that would like to know more about wine and its production. It offers a unique experience involving beautiful scenery, relaxed atmosphere, and the culture of a working farm and vineyard. With this exclusive membership in our vineyard, you not only get to enjoy having a vested interest in the life of your vine, you will also have vineyard privileges. After training you will be able to prune, train, and harvest along with vineyard staff and other Adopt A Vine members.
