June’s here and “School’s Out for the Summer!” We are celebrating graduations, weddings and Dad’s special day! And we’re opening the rose garden for special events and inaugurating our new “bandstand” with live music.Come on up for a visit, bring a picnic and enjoy great Burrell School wine along with a view that lasts forever.
Now is the time to see the tiny grape clusters forming on the vines – they’re smaller than grapeseeds right now, but you can watch them grow into plump clusters if you visit the winery often during the summer. Don’t forget, we have “Wine Survival Kits” from the Summit Store available for purchase at the tasting room. Enjoy a bottle of wine and contemplate the lush green vineyards in the shade of the old maple tree.
