Get Involved


Many hands make light work. The vineyard is calling all gardeners, pruners, outdoor lovers, birders, anyone who enjoys working outside to help tend the vineyard. You will learn how to take care of grapevines and see a lot of beauty and have a lot of fun while doing it.

Volunteer orientations: Next volunteer opportunity will be in April for pruning.
