On Oct. 10, we went to Zillah to Two Mountain Vineyards & Winery. We were able to see what a winemaker does all in one day. We went out to the vineyard, tasted the grapes, picked a bunch (with SHOULDERS!), mashed them in a baggie, put the juice on the refractometer to check the brix, and then brought them back to the winery where we learned about yeasts, barrels, storage, etc... Matt, Pat, & Rachel went above & beyond our expectations in sharing the whole experience with us all. Rachel had our lunch all laid out for us and we had wine from the barrel to go along with it. A truly FUN & educational day!
