Become a Picker

Every year in late September or early October we gather volunteers to enjoy a morning of grape picking and a fun harvest party! This is a great way to soak in the prairie’s beautiful fall weather while experiencing the harvest first-hand. We are so appreciative of those who help us, and we love teaching you a bit about the wine business in return.

We usually try to assemble a group of about 30 pickers, randomly chosen from our list of those who are interested. It is hard to plan this date too far in advance because we must be ready when the grapes are and the timing of that changes year to year.

If you would like to help out, send us an email with your current email address and the subject: picking and we will add you to our list.

Special Events & Tastings

On occasion we will have special parties of 10 or so wine lovers who help barrel sample our wines not yet released to the public. These focus groups help us decide our future blending strategies, flavor descriptions, and release dates. This is a unique way for our supporters to see the inside of our winemaking world.
