"To Tell The Truth" Norton Event with Lucie Morton

Event Date

Saturday, June 15, 2024
1:30pm - 4:00pm

Will the real Norton please stand up? Come be an ampelographer for the day and help us uncover the truth of the Norton vines at Casanel Vineyards and Winery! For almost 150 years, a Norton doppelganger, the mysterious Cynthiana merged into vineyards so furtively and effectively that the two merged into one in the world of wine to the point of (erroneously) being considered synonymous. Lucie Morton, Casanel’s viticulturist needs your help to discover the difference amongst our vines!

Included in this opportunity!

·        introduction to the world of ampelography 

·        vineyard practicum with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cynthiana and Norton

·        help solve the Norton dual identity mystery by tagging vines

·        taste 5 Casanel "Nortons" guided by our winemaker Adam McTaggart and personal charcuterie board.

Price is $150 per person- this class ticket is to help raise funds for Lucie’s film Odyssey of Forbidden Wines.
