Wines in Motion

  • North Gate Vineyard 16031 Hillsboro Road Purcellville, VA (map)

Join us in the midst of harvest season as we explore wine (and grapes) as they follow the path from picking to bottling.  While most of us are experienced with tasting wine, Wine in Motion is a tasting from a winemaker's point of view - different grapes, juice, fermenting juice, and finished wine.  This is a great opportunity to see (and taste) the process of harvest and fermentation, and to understand what a winemaker looks for with ripe fruit, and what decisions are made in the cellar. If you have always wanted to know a little more about the wine making process this is an excellent opportunity.   

We will taste and discuss with our wine maker the several different processes that grapes go through, including a tasting of benchmark wines which we strive to emulate with our vineyards.  This will be an interactive event so bring on the questions and curiosity! Light fare provided.
