You have always wanted to do it, so why not make 2019 the year that you make wine? Yes, wine. Millbrook Winery, every year, holds a wine making boot camp. This is a real thing.

The boot camp will take place from April 2019 through March 2020, eight different hands-on sessions. Topics covered include growing grapes, pruning, leaf pulling, harvesting grapes, celebrating the harvest and bottling. The boot camp needs a minimum of 10 people to be held and has a maximum participation of 20 people.

According to their brochure:

All participants must be physically fit to provide manual labor in the vineyard. Participants must be able to lift 40 lbs.

The Boot Camp registration fee also includes:

  • All of the in-the-vineyard seminars
  • One seat at Millbrook Winery's Tocai New Release Party
  • Post-seminar lunches with wine at the Vineyard Grille
  • One seat at Millbrook Winery's 29th Annual Harvest Party
  • 1 case (12 bottles) of custom labeled Lollipop Hill Tocai Friulano wine after bottling, which should take place on or about March 2020
