Chalkboard & Events
This is where happenings are announced: a new release of wine, an event, a seasonal greeting, or just whimsy.
Concerts at the Winery
An evening of stories and poems that consider the origins and mysteries, the delights and seductions of the fruits of the vine and the depths of the wine.
Islander Michael Meade is a nationally renowned and respected storyteller and mythologist who spins his wit and intelligence exploring our world.
Meade says, ”Wine and the soul have always been entwined; both tend to improve and develop character as they age. The vine has always been connected to the divine whether it be to Bacchus and the dance of the “Bacchantes” or the shape-shifting revelations of Dionysus the lord of ecstasy and theater. The eternal vine winds its way through the valleys and hillsides of the world and through the hearts and minds of humankind. "
Island Jazz Quintet
The Island Jazz Quintet played at the winery outdoors, as kind of a wine(d) down from the long weekend.
