Round Barn Wine Camp is a hands-on adventure to not only learn how wine gets from the grape to the glass but to actually make wine with your camp partner. We’ve even narrowed it down to the 2 best parts; harvesting (in October) and blending & bottling (in May).
Although our camp experience is quite casual, it will cover topics such as vineyard work, the terroir of the Lake Michigan Shore AVA, the art of winemaking and blending and more. Your Camp Counselors, AKA our Winemaker and staff, will guide you in crafting 2 cases of your very own red wine! To break it down, you’ll participate in behind the scenes work, drink a little wine, learn a lot, and have a ton of fun all the while.
In keeping with the Scout Motto, ‘Always be prepared’, we ask that you bring along weather appropriate clothing – a rain poncho and yard gloves – as it’s a rain or shine hike into the vineyard. You can, however, leave behind your cooking gear as our caterers will serve deliciously paired appetizers elevating the experience so it feels a bit more like Glamping. Don’t worry though, the camp shtick isn’t taken too literally…you’ll return home to sleep in the comfort of your own bed.
This is a private event, limited to 25 couples, with time to talk with and learn from our Winemaker and staff. Each two-some will receive the following:
- 24 bottles of your very own handcrafted red wine
- 2 Wine Camp t-shirts
- Complementary wine & appetizers during camp (both days)
- Complementary wine tasting for 2 in our tasting room (both days)
- An extra 15% off all wine purchases made on camp days
