“Fall” in Love with Autumn at Willow Creek
Hey there all you wine enthusiasts! The fall season is now upon us, and boy did it come fast! Though the summer crowds have begun to die down, we’re still just as busy as ever with harvest and wedding season in full swing in addition to all of the wonderful guests that visit our farm and winery every single day. So now that summer has officially ended, what is there to look forward to enjoying with all our your friends here at Willow Creek this fall? Check out our recap of this past summer and some of our plans for what promises to be an amazing fall season down at the farm!
New Wines Released
All summer long, our winemaker and cellar manager were working away in the our wine cellar (complete with a sign stating “Mad
Scientists Only.”) Well, their hard work certainly has paid off! This month alone, we’ve released six new Estate wines that we can’t wait to share with you. To check out our current wine list, click HERE. On a side note, if you didn’t have the chance to visit us over the summer, we’ve all introduced some fantastic new items to our tapas menu, which can be viewed HERE.
Mother Nature is a fickle friend to every farmer, and she certainly made this grow season tricky with the rain and high temperatures. As a result, our harvesting began quite early this year (about a month earlier than previous seasons) with our Pinot Noir, the thin-skinned “Prince” of our vineyard, being the first to go.
We have two additional harvest dates this week on Tuesday, September 26th & Wednesday, September 27th. For more details and to register, send us an email or contact the Winery at (609)770-8782 ext. 5.
With that being said, please note that due to Mother Nature’s unpredictability, this may be your last chance to volunteer this season. If you would like to be on the
email list for future pickings, please send us an email to WillowCreekWinery@gmail.com Subject: Grape Pickers.
