Original Grandpere/1869 Vineyard

Original Grandpere/1869 Vineyard

Fri, Jan 12, 2018 - Mon, Jan 15, 2018
11:00 AM to 4:30 PM    
Venue: Andis Wines, Scott Harvey Wine, Vino Noceto, Taste Restaurant

Andis Wines, Scott Harvey Wines, and Vino Noceto will host a weekend of events to celebrate the continuing vivacity of the Original Grandpère Vineyard (OGP), also known as Vineyard 1869. Over the course of four days, guests to Amador County will have a chance to taste, sip, and explore the Zinfandel vineyard heralded as the oldest documented Zinfandel Vineyard in America.

The Original Grandpère Vineyard, also known as Vineyard 1869, is the oldest documented Zinfandel vineyard in America dating back to the 1860’s, and was named 2016 Vineyard of the Year by the California State Fair. Still in production today, only four wineries are privileged enough to receive fruit from this vineyard, three in Amador County - Andis Wines, Scott Harvey Wines, and Vino Noceto – with the fourth being Macchia in Lodi.

Feast - The weekend kicks off Friday, January 12th at the award-winning Taste Restaurant, where a special Prix-Fix menu will highlight pairings with the OGP/Vineyard 1869 Zinfandel offerings from Andis Wines, Scott Harvey Wines, and Vino Noceto. To make reservations, please contact Taste Restaurant directly at (209) 245-3463. This dinner will be offered Friday-Sunday, January 12-14. (Dinner Separate from ticket price below).

Unique Tastings – Saturday-Monday, January 13-15th, each winery will be offering current and library vintage tastings of their OGP/Vineyard 1869 Zinfandel, paired with small bites. Passport tickets can be purchased in advance or in-person “day-of” at all three wineries for $30. The passport ticket will grant you access to all three locations, plus a 15% discount on “OGP” Zinfandel purchases for the weekend.

Vineyard Tours – Saturday Jan. 13th & Sunday Jan. 14th you’ll have the chance to walk amongst the ancient vines themselves – Saturday with winemaker Rusty Folena of Vino Noceto and Sunday, with past proprietor & winemaker, Scott Harvey. Tours will meet at the vineyard at 10am, weather permitting. The tasting passport and tour package is $40 per person. Reservations are required, as space is limited to 24 people.
