Not that we think you need reminding, but, this Saturday is field trip day!!!
And not just any old "going to a museum on a stinky old bus with a hundred other stinky kids" kinda field trip.
Noooooooo way! This is an adult field trip. And we're going to learn about grapes. And pruning. And growing and some may even be drinking! Told ya this was an adult field trip.
Growing grapes in New England can be a challenge, especially for the backyard enthusiast. But, fret not backyard enthusiast! Your prayers have been answered. We will have the privilege of getting one on one face time with the owner and vintner of the Gilmanton Winery himself, Marshall Bishop and his wife Sunny, and they're prepared to let YOU prune THEIR vineyard, ask questions, and take home a pruning to show all your neighbors. Won't you be the hit of the next garden party?
Write down your questions and cleanse your palates because we're setting sail for one heck of a day.
If you don't know the date (this Saturday, 4/30) and the time (9-12) or that you need, need, need to reserve your spot, then for crying out loud click this link: Winery Meetup.
Be there or be square 'cause that's where all the cool kids will be hanging out Saturday morning.
And just in case you needed more reasons to show up, here's a pretty little graphic. Photos courtesy of The Gilmanton Winery (to let you know it's all about the health baby) and a link to their FB page with ideas for Mothers Day (guilt, guilt).
