WINEMAKER’S PICK SATURDAY 20TH APRIL 2019
Be a part of the winemaking team for Vintage 2019!
Saturday 20th April 7.30am
Location – Cape Grace Winery and Vineyard,
281 Fifty One Road, Cowaramup, WA 6284.
Cape Grace Wines are offering you the opportunity to come and experience the excitement of vintage! Come behind the scenes at the winery and be a part of the inner sanctum of the 2019 Vintage Winemaking Team.
Kick off will be at 7.30 am for a picking debrief. Teams will harvest succulent, ripe bunches of red grapes straight from the vine whilst examining the flavour profiles of the grape and the biology of the vine under the expert guidance of Winemaker, Dylan Arvidson. Owner, Robert Karri-Davies will also provide viticultural insights as to why Cape Grace is such a special site on which to grow grapes.
Welcome to Winemaking 101 as you process the grapes you have harvested and prepare them for ferment, again under Dylan and Rob’s guidance. Have all your winemaking queries answered as we take you through the winemaking process and a sneak peek at up and coming vintages with a barrel tasting.
All this hard work will be rewarded with a “Vineyard Worker’s Lunch”, including tasty snippets off the barbecue followed by a tasting of current releases. All participants will then be offered the opportunity to secure their allocation of the 2019 Storyteller Red.
Opportunities like this don’t come around very often! Tickets are $50 per person and are strictly limited to ensure we can provide you with an upfront and personal experience of the thrill of vintage.
You will get dirty so please don’t wear white!!!
