Since the beginnings of agriculture, customs, religion and necessity have built traditions of gathering unharvested wheat, fruit, olives and grapes at the end of the growing season. Each year, after the main harvest of the vineyard is complete, the second crop arrives. It grows from lateral vines rather than the primary shoot, ripens much later and generally doesn’t get much respect. But with the right fall conditions, a second crop can delight. For more than ten years, we have gathered with friends after the harvest, brought buckets and harvesting knives, roasted up some lunch and brought in a second crop of Pinot Noir.
Bring your dirty shoes and boots and join us in walking Poseidon Vineyard in Napa Carneros and gleaning our second crop of Pinot Noir. We’ll end with a delicious meal and libations along Carneros Creek, and with luck you will taste the fruit of your labor in a bottle of wine, about two years from now.
Please note spots are very limited. We encourage you to gather your friends and spend a blissful mid-fall day with us out in the vineyard. Luckily, 80 acres allows us plenty of room to roam, have fun and stay safe too as you stay within your very own “pod”.
