Come join us on the
Come join us on the 20th of May for our 11th annual Nelson Family Vineyards Member’s only blending party! The day begins at 11:30 with check~in, bubbly and hor d’oeuvres. Catered lunch is served at 12:00. We then sample each of the varietals that will be available for blending, while discussing how they might work in a blend. Once we get through the individual wines, our guest winemakers begin the blending process by creating several “trial blends”. Take this opportunity to put your own artistic blending skills to the test. All final blends will be blindly judged by the Nelsons, who will in-turn pick the top two blends. The final decision is made by you our members. If your team wins, than your the vintner for our 2017 Barn Blend!
Space is limited so please call Sherrilynn 707.462.3755 to make reservations as soon as possible. Tickets are $45 per blender and $20 per driver. Because of the huge demand for this event, there will be a 72 hour cancellation policy in effect. So, if you need to cancel, please do so before the 72 hour period.
