Wine drinkers rejoice, as Fall is coming and the crush is drawing nigh.
This weekend, the six wineries of the Old Sugar Mill will be celebrating with their annual crush party. In addition to the usual tastings and such, they will feature barrel tastings, a grape stomping contest, live music, super discounts, local food vendors and the opportunity to bottle your own wine. Personally, I really dig the self-bottling as it it allows you to personalize bottles for gifts, create custom blends and have access to small batch wines. Last year, I bottled some tremendous Carvalho tempranillo for half the price of the standard bottle.
Tickets are $15 advance/$20 door.
