Saturday, September 13th, 2014 CASK
A PROGRESSIVE WINE TASTING EVENT
Noon– 5:00 PM– $6.00 per person at each winery
The cask project began as an idea in 2010 to have a continual red blend from the Grand River Valley.  Each year a percentage of the wine will be bottled and sold to make room for the next year’s harvest.  The date on the bottle represents the year it began “10″ and the year it was bottled “14″.  Each winery used a different 500 gallon oak barrel with vinifera grapes from their farm.  Join us for our 3rd annual  event as we pop the cork on our vintage “Cask 1014″.
Join Debonne Vineyards, Ferrante Winery, Grand River Cellars, Laurello Vineyards, and St. Joseph Vineyards for an afternoon of wine sampling and tasty appetizers.
