The sun is shining and the grapes are ripening, which can only mean one thing....
Harvest Is Almost Here!!!
Our fall tradition of volunteer harvest at Grace Hill Winery is quickly approaching, with our first harvest scheduled for Saturday, August 13th. Harvest is always our most popular event of the year, and we'd like for everyone to have a chance to join in on the fun, so here's how to sign up.
Send us an email (which you can do right now by replying to this email or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org), and please state your top 2 choices for dates you'd like to come harvest, and we'll do our best to make sure that everyone gets a chance to harvest. We're looking at harvest dates of August 13th, 20th, and 27th, as well as September 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th. Please specify which two dates you would be most interested in coming to and we'll let you know which one we've got you down for. Please note that harvest is a weather related activity, so these dates are subject to change due to inclement weather or uneven ripening.
For those unfamiliar with the harvest process, we pick on Saturday mornings throughout August and September, for 2-3 hours each Saturday. Once the picking is done, the harvest crew heads into the event center for free lunch and wine! Thanks in advance to everyone who signs up and we hope to see you at harvest!!

(3pm Is Sold Out But We Still Have Availability At 12:30pm)
Test your hand as a winemaker at Build Your Own Wine Day! We'll be bringing up 3 red wines and 3 white wines from the Grace Hill Wine cellar and allowing you to mix them into a "made for you, by you" blend! You'll be able to make a white, red, or rose, and have it be sweet, dry, or anything in between. Once you've come up with the perfect blend, we'll blend, bottle, cork, and capsule your very own handmade wine right on the spot! Send in a picture ahead of time and we'll put it on the label for you! The custom bottles are a fun way to spruce up your home or wine cellar, and also make great gifts!
