Enjoy a paella lunch at beautiful Kick Ranch while listening to winemakers and industry professionals talk about the history, terroir and character of Fountaingrove District. After lunch, choose one of several optional excursions to other Fountaingrove District vineyards, wineries or other features. Then reconvene at Kick Ranch for dessert and coffee.
Or perhaps you’d rather spend the afternoon at Kick Ranch, where you can enjoy live music, take a vineyard hike to admire the mountain vistas and learn more about the terroir of Fountaingrove from a local expert. You can also take home some organic produce from the on-site Leisen’s Bridgeway Farm.
And everyone who attends will be entered in a raffle for a chance to take home a bottle of Hidden Ridge 2012 Impassable Mountain Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Parker rated 97 points.) [Hidden Ridge 2013 Impassable Mountain Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon recently received a perfect 100 from Robert Parker but is not yet released.]
Kick Ranch is a 42-acre working vineyard on 100 acres. While all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) will be available to transport guests, most will choose to walk about 600 feet from the parking area to the event through the vine rows. Dress casually and wear comfortable walking shoes and a hat. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Over 21 only! No pets, please.
Join us for one of the many optional afternoon excursions we'll be offering on-site at Kick Ranch
and off-site at other Fountaingrove wineries and beautiful locales.
Due to limited availability, all attendees must register for excursions in advance using the form below.
Please note that off-site excursions will require your own transportation.
