It’s here!!!  The moment many of you have been waiting for!  The dates for the 2013 iPick, iStomp, iDrink!  After a cool spring, we anticipated a late harvest, starting in September; however, the heat we received in July moved our projections up.  The grapes look amazing and we’re anticipating a bumper crop this year!  If you need some convincing, below are some photos of the fun we've had over the years!

The dates for this year’s iPick will be:

August 24 (FULL)
August 31 
September 7 (FULL)
September 14  (FULL)
September 21 

Note: Picking dates are subject to change on short notice and are weather & grape ripeness dependent; grapes may be harvested faster than anticipated, therefore we recommend if you want to harvest to join us earlier in season.

Here are the details:

Where: Mainly at our Brickyard Hill Vineyard (Marengo, IA) about 5 miles west of the Winery.  Some picking will be done at the Winery.
