We are excited to welcome the 1784 Wine Club to our inaugural member-exclusive Harvest Festival on Sunday, September 8th! In addition to tasting and picking up your September shipment, Early Mountain has planned a day full of illuminating wine tasting sessions - details below.

Each member has a complimentary entry for themselves and a guest. PLUS, they are welcome to invite up to 4 friends ($10 per person) who will receive full member benefits for the day (15% discount on wine, free tasting flight)! We can't wait to celebrate the harvest with our Club members! Learn more or join the club HERE.

An array of food trucks will be onsite for purchase throughout the day in addition to the fun seminar options. Food truck options include Spice Sea Gourmet, Côte Rôtie, Blue Ridge Pizza, and sweet treats from Wonderment and Cake Krums.

Food and Wine Pairing Challenge

Early Mountain's culinary and winemaking team will match wits and wine pairing abilities in this fun competition! Chef Tim Moore is crafting 4 complex dishes and our wine experts will compete for the best pairing. You will get to enjoy the 4 dishes + 8 wines (2 per dish), and you will also vote on your favorite pairings and determine who's pairings will triumph! Guaranteed to be fun and delicious.

Sensory Adaptation Seminar
