Barrel to Bottle experiences begin with an informative session on barrel tasting, held in February. Here, guests learn about the aging process and get the chance to taste wine in the barrel. Return in June to learn about wine blending, tasting each component on its own. Then in September, students attend a bottling session where the wine is bottled and labeled and everyone gets the chance to sample the finished product. At the end of this meeting, visitors take home four full bottles of wine each. Click here to see a list of dates available for each session.

Coterie Cellars

Coterie Cellars believes part of wine's beauty is tasting the fruits of a tiny parcel of land captured at a certain moment. To that end, they aim to interfere as little as possible in the grape-to-bottle process. In their California vineyards, they harvest and sort clusters by hand and ferment their wines in small batches—red wine in small lots, white wine in individual barrels. They punch the grapes down by hand, using gravity to move wine through the system with as little fining and filtering as possible. The result: bottles of wine named for the vineyards where all of the grapes are grown.
