Grape harvest is getting closer, and the St. James Winery winemaking staff is checking on the grapes regularly to see how they are doing.  It’s always a guessing game as to when the grapes will be ready, so each year the winery has a Harvest Pool to predict the start of harvest.

Please join our Harvest Pool with your best guess!  Here’s what you need to know:  1) at St. James Winery, we mark the official start time of harvest at the moment the first grapes hit the crush pit, and 2) think late in the day when those sugars get all nice and happy.

The person who picks the date and time closest to the actual harvest start time is the winner!  The lucky person will receive:

  • Official 2013 St. James Winery Harvest Crew T-shirt
  • Opportunity to join Andrew for a private barrel tasting

Go to our Harvest Pool Entry Form and enter your best guess.  Harvest Pool closes at midnight August 4th, so visit us online and enter today!

Wear your walking shoes and bring your (crowd-friendly) pooch for an afternoon dog walk exploring our vineyard doggy trail and enjoying your favorite award-winning wines from St. James Winery.

A portion of the proceeds will go toward the Tri-County Humane Society. Donations of non-perishable dog food, pet toys, and cleaning supplies are also most welcome.

Advance tickets are $15 per person ($20 at the door), and admission price includes two glasses of wine for you, as well as water and treats for the furry friends. There is a limit of 2 dogs per person, and dogs must be kept on leashes at all times.
