Talking Blocks Vineyard Hike & Wine Flight [Daily, Sept 12-17]
September 12 | 11:00 am - September 17 | 1:30 pm PDT| $55
11:00am Daily from Saturday September 12 through Thursday, Sept 17
Walk in the footsteps of our parents, Cal & Julia Lee Knudsen, and learn about our 125-acre vineyard, planted mainly to Pinot noir and Chardonnay, plus a tiny block of Pinot meunier. Our family has owned this land since 1971 and we look forward to sharing our history with you as we take a casual hike to the Talking Blocks – a new series of limited production Pinot noir focusing on four unique blocks.
Discover the wines that come from these blocks and learn about our low-impact and sustainable farming practices. Managing Partner and Second Generation Owner, Page Knudsen Cowles, will be your host for this memorable experience at Knudsen Vineyards. An educational tasting on our Terrace will follow the hike to discuss the many characteristics found in our wines including the effects of elevation, aspect, vine age, clonal selection, and vine spacing.
A boxed picnic lunch will be provided and menu options will be emailed separately prior to the event. $55 per person/ $40 for Family Roots Wine Club Members and up to four guests.
* This walk will take place in our vineyard which varies in elevation from 500-1000 feet. Uneven ground and rugged terrain will be underfoot and we encourage hiking boots or comfortable sneakers that you don’t mind getting dirty.
** Please be prepared to stand in warm areas of the vineyard and protect your skin with the proper attire and/or sunscreen. We also recommend that you bring a personal water bottle that can be refilled during your visit.
(Please refrain from bringing your four-legged friends, or plan for them to stay in your vehicle if the weather allows.)
