The Only Event of its Kind in Minnesota.

Join our Harvest CReW! Register Today for the Fall Harvest Experience!

$25/person.  Includes shuttled transportation to and from the Winery and Vineyard, an educational, hands-on harvesting experience, a catered meal with a wine tasting, as well as coupons to use on Winery purchases.

As the warmth of summer begins to wane, our grapes reach the critical balance of sweetness and acidity, signaling the start of the harvest. At their peak of ripeness, we pluck the grapes from the vine with our very own hands to preserve the integrity of the fruit and to ensure our wine is of the highest quality. It’s an age-old tradition that connects us back to the earth and to simpler times.

Cannon River Winery invites you to join us for the Fall harvest beginning mid-September. Your journey for this exclusive event begins at our Winery. From there, we will transport you to our nearby Vineyard, where you’ll get the unique opportunity to pick grapes by hand amongst the lush rolling hills of the picturesque Sogn Valley. You’ll learn about the history of the vineyard and the art of growing grapes as you breathe in the crisp Autumn air and feel the warm summer sun on your back.

After working up a hearty appetite, you’ll dine alfresco with the gorgeous vineyard as your backdrop. You’ll be treated to a well-earned catered meal and wine tasting – the opportunity to taste the fruits of your labor – literally!

Once you’ve had a chance to relax, we’ll travel back to our historic winery, where you’ll see our experienced winemaker and production staff in action as they de-stem and crush the grapes from the day’s harvest. Enjoy a glass of wine and live music while being a part of the wine production process!

And you’re not done! In the Spring, we’ll invite you back for an exclusive tank or barrel tasting where you will be introduced to the fermented [but not finished] wines you helped create.

Reservations are required for this event. The harvest fills up quickly, so please register today.

At just $25 per person, this is an incredible value for a day of fun, education and wine tasting!
