The Weekend Itinerary
Since there’s no chance of having large group events this year, we’ve decided to go for a smaller, more intimate winemaking experience. Spend the weekend at Seven Birches Winery, with owner/winemaker, Mark LaClair, and learn some of the finer points of winemaking, blending, tasting, and pairing. The weekend looks like this:
Friday, 7pm – 9pm Wine Social
Join us between 7pm and 9pm at the Atrium Wine Bar (across the parking lot from RiverWalk Resort) for a glass of wine to start the weekend. Your first glass of wine is included with your ticket.
Saturday, 8am – 10m Breakfast at the Toast
Start the morning right with a harvest-themed breakfast at the best place in town, the Toast at LaVista. Located right inside the resort lobby, The Toast at LaVista will dazzle you with their creative and scrumptious breakfast. Breakfast is included with your ticket.
Saturday, 10am – 4pm Wine Blending with the Winemaker
During your selected time slot, your group (max 8 people) will work with the winemaker to craft a unique blend of red wine. Using beakers, and pipettes, you’ll learn how to conduct “bench trials” to blend wines into your very own wine. Blend. Sample. Repeat. Success!
Once you have concocted your perfect blend, you’ll join the other Seven Birches Winemakers in our winery production room where you will recreate that blend on a larger scale. You’ll need to blend 1 gallon of wine (minimum) so that you can fill, cork, and label 5 bottles of wine that you get to take home! While doing this, you’ll also get to enjoy a sample of red wine from one of our special fermentations in process.
The blending activity, barrel tasting, and 5 bottles of custom-blended wine are included with your ticket.
Saturday, 9am – 5pm Relax and Un-Wine at Solstice North Day Spa
Choose from one of the many wine/grape themed services offered at Solstice North Day Spa, located inside the RiverWalk Resort lobby. A list of these special event spa services can be found below. Because these services vary in price, they are sold as “add-ons” to your ticket.
Saturday, 7pm – 9pm Winemakers Dinner
The top of the evening is the 3-Course, formal wine pairing dinner at the Atrium Events Venue (across the parking lot from RiverWalk Resort). The winemaker and chef have paired together a starter (appetizer), main course, and desert with the perfect wine accompaniment. Mark the winemaker will give a presentation on a grape’s path from vineyard to bottle, showing visually how we select, harvest, crush, press, ferment, age and bottle all of our Seven Birches Wines. Your groups will come together in this intimate evening with the Winemakers allowing for plenty of time for questions, answers, and good times. Dinner and 3 glasses of wine are included with your ticket.
Sunday, 10am – 11am Wine Club Members’ Pick Up
Club members drop in and pick up your club release and catch up with Mark and the gang one last time before you head home. Non-members that join the club will receive a special 25% discount on additional wine purchased that day.
