Ring in Harvest 2014 with us at the Fourth Annual GFV Crush Cookout! The 2014 Harvest will be giving us ample reason to celebrate, and in true Grassini Family fashion, we have something special planned.  

Not only will we be showing our newest wines (including our extremely-limited-production 2011 Estate Cab Reserve!), we are hosting the party by the pond in the pavilion! Enjoy live music while relaxing under the shade of our 400-year-old oak trees. Take our row boat out for a leisurely paddle across the pond, or challenge your friends in an exciting game of corn hole! And if that’s too calm for you, try your hand at bocchi ball or horseshoes! 

This is a great opportunity for Wine Club members to pick up their Wine Club wines right at the source! All of our wines will be available to purchase, and we’re offering complimentary shipping on wines purchased at the Cookout.  Wine Club members will also have “first dibs” on all of the new releases and limited production wines.
