Vineyard Visit for September
On Thursday, September 19th we will be meeting at the foothill vineyard of SWGGA member Chacewater Winery & Olive Mill. With almost 30 acres of vines off of Bitney Springs Road, Kelseyville based Chacewater has been operated locally by the Manuel family for over 30 years.
We’ll be hosted by Matt Manuel, vineyard manager of Chacewater’s foothills operation. There will be a discussion of the vineyard history, makeup and how it is maintained. Afterwards we’ll taste some of the Chacewater wines, and we’ll have some pizza delivered, too.
This is a little different from our usual meetings, so, we ask that you bring a bottle of your wine to share, as there will be a tasting, but, wine will not be available for sale.
Also, there will be seating for about 25 people, so, you might throw a folding chair and some wine glasses in the car (just in case we get a huge crowd).
Please plan to get there by 6:30 PM, as the light gets low early by mid-September.
The location is: Off Bitney Springs Road at
