Once a year bud break takes place in the vineyard.
It's one of the most spectacular moments of the year!
Grab your camera, a glass of wine, and come join us! This is your chance to photograph a truly unique and special occurrence at Wise Villa Winery. During bud break our grapes begin their annual growth cycle. Tiny buds on the vine start to swell and eventually begin to grow shoots from the buds. The shoots sprout tiny leaves that begin the photosynthesis process.
In between taking photos enjoy wine tasting, delicious starter plates, gourmet dinner, wine by the glass and bottle - available for purchase.
Open to photographers, painters, and all other artists who want to capture this special moment!
Spectators and wine lovers are welcome to join.
