Many thanks to everyone who helped pick the grapes for 2011 Ice Wine! It was a beautiful day and with the large number of people we were able to pick the frozen grapes in record time!  For those who were stuck on the waiting list, we hope to see you once the fall harvest rolls around and thank you for understanding!

Fall Grape Harvest

Posted September 1, 2010 @ 12:00am | by Cannon River Winery

Calling all Volunteers! Harvest is almost past! We are looking for people to volunteer to help harvest our grapes that will make our wines.

Join our Celebration of the Fall Harvest by enjoying our beautiful scenery, learning about harvesting, and sharing in a delightful lunch.

Harvest begins early this year with our first groups on Saturday, Sept 4 and Sunday, Sept 5. and will continue through September and into the first weekend of October!

These are 3 hour shifts of grape picking followed by a catered lunch and beverages.

Shifts are 9-Noon and 1-4 p.m.

Contact the winery at 507-263-7400 or to sign up. All that is required is your name, phone number, and e-mail address.

Thanks so much for your interest. It is sure to be a fabulous experience!

Here is what some of our volunteers had to say about their grape picking experience -

"Thanks for giving us in the community this unique opportunity!"

"I learned a lot, had a great time and made new friends!"

"We are excited to be a part of the harvest!"
