Educational     Tasting (walk around)     Wine    

How does fresh-pressed grape juice become wine? Learn how with Fence Stile owner-winemaker Shriti Plimpton inside the winery. This tour and tasting ($25/person) is an EXCLUSIVE opportunity to explore what happens once estate grapes are harvested, crushed, and pressed for juice.

We're in the middle of the 2019 harvest season! During this Inside the Winery session, Shriti will discuss fermentation of grape juice, yeast selection, and her critical role as a winemaker to convert fresh juice into a new vintage of wine. Tour guests will sample several early-stage wines from the 2019 harvest during mid-fermentation. This is a RARE, limited-time-only peek behind-the-scenes during harvest season.

Guests will also taste a flight of finished wines from a previous vintage year. Shriti will guide guests through the tasting of 2019 mid-fermentation wines and previous vintage wines. During the tasting, guests can compare sensory notes and understand the winemaker's craft and decisions involved to produce wine from grape to glass.

Fence Stile is only able to offer this Inside the Winery: Fermentation Tour and Tasting for a LIMITED number of sessions during harvest season at the early stage of winemaking. Don't miss out on this fun, informative tour and tasting in the winery.
