How does it work? 

Our Bottle Your Own event gives you a behind the scenes look at part of the winemaking process. This year, winemakers Thérèse and Dan Martin have been crafting a delicious Rhône blend for you to bottle. You'll select what time you'd like to begin your bottling, and we'll set up our production area just as we do for our winemaking team, with the wine, bottle, cork, capsule, and label to let you try your hand at bottling!

After you bottle your wine, enjoy a picnic on the patio while listening to live music from the Classic Echoes and Elastic Moon. Wine will be available for purchase by the glass and bottle. 

Feeling creative? For the first time ever we're hosting a wine label contest! In the past, lots of families have had fun designing their own labels for various events: weddings, birthdays, reunions, etc. Over the years we've seen a lot of amazing labels, and so this year we are hosting a label contest to reward you for your hard work!

    LABEL CONTEST

    This year we are holding our first ever label contest! Making your own labels adds a special touch to your wine, and can be perfect for weddings, reunions, corporate gifts, and birthday parties. Over the years we've seen a lot of amazing labels, and decided that it's about time we host a contest! 

    It's very simple to enter, all you need to do is provide us with a copy of your label when you come to bottle. We'll take all of the labels and upload them to an online survey which we will send to our Wine Club members. Throughout the month of March, our club members will be able to vote on their favorite design. We'll announce the winner in our first email in April, and the winner will receive a magnum of wine! If you're looking for a great tool for designing your own wine labels, Evermine is a great place to start!

    TIME TRIALS

    If you're bottling 12 cases or more, and think you're the fastest bottler on Redwood Retreat Road, we'll time you and see how you actually stack up compared to everyone else! After groups bottling 12 or more cases have all bottled, we'll announce the winner and they'll receive a magnum of wine as their trophy.


    Final details

    • This is a hands on event, so please dress accordingly! Because you will be working alongside our machinery, we ask that you wear comfortable closed toed shoes- no sandals or high heels.
    • No dogs will be allowed at the winery on any of the bottling days. Parties with dogs will be asked to leave, and our staff will bottle the wine for you at the bottling rate listed below.
    • Bottle Your Own is a really fun event for families and friends. For safety reasons, children are not allowed in bottling areas, but are welcome to wait with an adult while the rest of the people in your party bottle. Children must be supervised at all times, so there must be at least 2 adults in your party if you are planning on bringing children.
    • Local bands "Classic Echoes" and "Elastic Moon" will be performing on Saturday, 2/24, and Sunday, 2/25, weather permitting. Pack a picnic and spend the afternoon at the winery with your family and friends! 
    No Dogs allowed
