Spring Wine Release & NEW Culinary Experience

April 18, 2020 | Seven Birches Winery, Lincoln, NH

Our third annual Spring Release Party plans are in place for the weekend of April 17 – 19, 2020.  We are excited to be adding a new twist to the party this year, a Culinary (cooking) Experience.  Winemaking, cooking, tasting, savoring, learning, and partying, all in one weekend!  Get your tickets today!

The weekend starts off with a wine cocktail reception on Friday, April 17 at the new Atrium Wine Bar, located at the Lincoln Village shops.  Then, Saturday morning, prepare to get into the winery with a hands-on activity led by the professional winemakers at Seven Birches Winery.  You’ll also make a special dish as you take part in a cooking demonstration, led by Chef Joe.  Saturday afternoon, we’ll have lunch and hear from the winemaker before sampling all the wines in the 2020 Spring Release.  We’ll take a deep dive into our wine knowledge with an educational wine workshop and the grand finale of the day is a 3-course wine pairing dinner, featuring the foods you made, paired with 3 wines from the release.

If you attended the release last year, then this will be a real treat!  If you have never been to one of our events, then this is the perfect time to try it out.

Time to get your hands dirty, literally.  During this activity, you become the winemaker for the day as you perform the same work that our winemakers do inside the winery.  You’ll learn how the tasks are done, with wine quality and safety in mind.  Best of all, you’ll be taking home a bottle of wine that you’re working on.  This has been a favorite activity the past 2 years for those that attended.  It’s destined to be the highlight of the weekend.

Group B: 11am – 12pm
