  • | 12:00pm - 4:00pm | Shows, Festivals, and Fairs
    - Join us for our 18th Annual Halleck Vineyard Harvest Party! The title speaks for itself: celebrate an extraordinary year and the cathartic relief as our babies are put to bed for another vintage.

    Harvest has historically been a time for celebration since the pagan era. The Lammas Festival in the UK marks the beginning of Harvest. Judaism, one of the oldest religions, has Succot. Epiphany, in Greece, hosts the Blessing of the Sea. In November, Olivagando in Magione, Italy marks the olive harvest. And of course, we have Thanksgiving in the United States.

    Our Harvest party represents gratitude for a boutiful harvest and liberation from the volatile forces of nature. It is a time of letting loose and sharing community.

    Join us for wine, music, a full sit-down lunch, oysters and commaraderie.
