Pruning in the Vines at Veritas

Event Date

Sunday, March 24, 2024
10:00am - 2:00pm

Pick up the pruning shears and head into the vineyard with Vineyard Manager Bill Tonkins to try your hand at the art of pruning vines. You will learn about the care and maintenance of the vines during this time of year, a vital part of bringing the wine you love from the vineyard to your glass. After all, wine is made in the vineyard!

After a short time in the vines, enjoy a hearty luncheon prepared by Chef Andy Shipman, accompanied by a selection of our award-winning wines.

The cost per person is $65.00, including lunch and wine.
