Tours at 1 and 3 p.m. on Saturdays & Sundays.
We got the Grapemobile out, got it washed off, spiffed up, and we await your visit. We will be giving two vineyard tours each weekend day (weather permitting) on the Grapemobile.
The tour takes about 45 minutes as you move about two miles through the vineyard
at Tassel Ridge Winery
. You will see Edelweiss
, St. Croix
, and Brianna
growing in this vineyard
, plus four experimental rows of grapes. The tour will address the kinds of grapes we grow, our trellis systems, our soils, why we can’t grow Vitis Vinifera (the grape varieties that grow in temperate climates), what we are doing in the vineyard
right now, and a little discussion of our environmental practices.
The price is $5 per person.
