The annual Celebration of Harvest is held in October each year, when we're in the thick of the winegrape harvest and winery staff take a needed break to showcase their latest wines, many newly bottled!

Event Details
Local restaurants, caterers and food suppliers will showcase their talents and produce by providing delicious samples. Live music from several bands will keep our toes tapping. An important part of the Celebration of Harvest is the Silent Auction - your chance to own some very special bottles of wine. And as it’s always a great idea to include a designated driver in your party, we will also offer a special designated driver ticket. DD’s enjoy the event, complete with all the food, the entertainment, non-alcoholic beverages and our sincere thanks for keeping our roads safe. Or, a lot of folks will leave the driving to us and take the bus! Festival buses will bring visitors directly to the Festival grounds, and return them to the pickup location at the end of the day.

The Vintners’ Visa is a four-day pass to 12 participating wineries, each of whom will pull out all the stops just for Vintners’ Visa holders. The Vintners' Visa can be used at participating wineries from Friday through Monday, so make it a long weekend!

In addition to the Celebration itself, and the special treats offered through the Vintners’ Visa, many member wineries will host special events - from winemaker dinners to Open Houses to tours and tastings at wineries not generally open to the public, there will be a full slate of events during the long weekend.
