Couples meet at 9 a.m. in the vineyard, where viticulturists show them how to de-stem grape bunches before guiding them through the winemaking process. From 9 a.m. to noon participants will harvest grapes. Afterwards, during a hands-on demonstration, guests will get to stomp grapes and press out the juice. At 12:30 p.m., groups take a break for a gourmet Italian lunch with wine served under an outdoor tent in the vineyard. The experience ends at 1:30 p.m., at which point visitors depart with two complimentary bottles of wine made.
Next Chapter Vineyard
A rustic red barn nestled in the fields of New Prague stands as the centerpiece of Next Chapter Vineyard. Around it stands six acres of vineyards blooming with marquette, frontenac, gris, and le crescent grapes. On these grounds, the Tulloch family mashes, presses, and ferments their varietals into a range of red and white wines. They often demonstrate their process to curious visitors and incorporate old winemaking techniques, such as grape stomping and wine bottling. Nearby, guests can pick apples at the Montgomery Apple Orchard.
