Event Description

In the spirit of the usual Harvest Festival at Hunt Country Vineyards, we will be hosting HARVEST DAY this year! While some of the traditions of Harvest Festival have to be put on hold because of the pandemic, we're still excited to bring you a special day to safely enjoy the Finger Lakes and celebrate the harvest season. Wine: Join us in our tasting room for a special, all access tasting: Any 5 wines for $10. We have some new and very exciting wines for you to try this season! Wines will also be available by the glass and bottle, with socially distanced seating inside and outside of our historic barn and vineyard grounds. Reservations, as always, are required for tastings. Food: The Anita Pizza food truck will be on site for noshes. Grape pies by Jeni's Pies will be available to purchase. And we have a whole variety of picnic items and snacks in our gift shop. Music: The amazing Evan Meulemans will be providing his live rhythms. Tours: The ever-popular tours will still be available. They will, of course, be limited in size and masks will be required. You'll also need to reserve a time slot for the tour. • Winery Production: Talk, Tour, and Tank Samples with Craig Hosbach, Head Winemaker (11am, 1pm, 3pm) • Q&A with Art Hunt, Co-owner and Co-founder: 50 Years Growing Grapes & Wine Making Experience (11am, 1pm, 3pm) • Q&A with Suzanne Hunt, Co-owner & Director of Sustainability: Uncharted Terroir, Stewardship for the Next Seven Generations, and tasting the two brand new Uncharted Terroir wines (12pm & 2pm) Other Activities: You're welcome to stroll through the vineyards to find the perfect spot to enjoy your your food and wine, the beautiful view, and – of course – the scent of ripe grapes wafting on the late-summer breeze. Ahhh. Ax throwing with renaissance man DJ Kitzel, all day long. Pick your own grapes. We'll provide the picking bags. Harvest Day happens rain or shine. Barn seating, porch seating, and tables about the vineyard grounds will be more limited during inclement weather. Reservations are required for tastings. Masks are required when inside buildings and at any time when appropriate social distancing is not possible. Contact: Tessa Olsen Phone: 800-946-3289 Email: Tessa@HuntWines.com
