Winemakers Wednesdays are held from 2 - 4 pm on the last Wednesday of each month, June through September. Our wonderful Winemaker, Benoit Gauthier will take you through the vineyard and winery to explore and discuss different aspects of winemaking and answer any questions you may have. There are limited spaces available and it is based on first come first serve. We are taking reservations now, please call the wineshop to book your spot! Priority will be given to Wine Club Members!
We have a few very special themes planned for the 2016 season's Winemaker Wednesdays including the following:
June 29 2016: Vertical tasting – Pinot Noir
We invite you to join us for a vertical tasting of Noble Ridge Pinot Noir. We will sample through different vintages from earliest to current vintages. This is a one of a kind event not to be missed!
July 27 2016: Understanding Noble Ridge’s Terroir: From vines to wine
Join our winemaker for an in depth explanation of how our terroir, our clones and our trellis system influence the final quality of our Cabernet Sauvignon. You will have the chance to sample wines made from every block as you walk through our vineyard and be able to make a direct connection between flavour profiles and our terroir.
August 31 2016: Be the Winemaker: An exercise in barrel blending
This is your opportunity to showcase your skills in this fun exercise of barrel blending. A selection of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels will be available for you to taste, analyse and use to make the perfect blend. At the end of the blending period, we will do a collective blind tasting and pick the best blend of the day.
September 28 2015: Crush time: Wine in the making
Join us for the most exciting time of the year. We will walk through the vineyard to assess grape ripeness, tour the crush-pad and sample wines directly from our tanks. If timing is right, you will also have the opportunity to be part of the winemaking process.
